Preschool and Child Care in Redding
Also Serving Families in Ridgefield, Bethel & Surrounding Communities


Our school in Redding at 20 Portland Avenue reflects all of the positive components we have learned about early childhood education over more than 30 years of providing exceptional childcare services. Our center in Redding is a beautiful facility with over-sized classrooms. As you drive in, you are welcomed by a large Educational Playcare sign along with our colorful landscaping. The center offers plenty of free parking spaces for parents for easy drop-off and pick-up. The classrooms benefit from wonderful natural lighting and colorful interior features. The center also has spacious playgrounds, providing the children with ample space to enjoy the outdoors while developing their large muscle skills.


Security cameras in each classroom and play area allow our Directors to continuously monitor activities throughout the school. We also have strategically placed panic buttons that link us directly to the local police department in the event of an emergency.

Interior Features

Walking into the classrooms, you will notice our beautiful and brightly lit classrooms. Our classrooms are enormous and provide much more space than the minimum requirements for Connecticut classrooms. All of our classrooms have been designed to be very child-centered, right down to the tiniest detail. Each of our preschool classrooms is significantly over-sized, providing much more than the minimum requirements for Connecticut classrooms. Each one is divided into activity centers that include science, math, music, movement, construction, literacy, and dramatic play. All of these centers are available to children throughout each day. During your tour, you will also find our professional kitchen. Parents love that we provide nutritious lunches, as well as two snacks each day, and the menu is very child friendly!

Exterior Features

Our outdoor play areas are unbelievable. There is plenty of shade under the many canopies on our playgrounds. Our infants and younger toddlers have a playground designed specifically for young children who are still crawling or learning to walk. Each playground is designed and gated for the safety of our children.
