his mother.  It means that parents and teachers cooperate in providing the best possible environment for the growth and development of young children.  A good program of Preschool education considers the whole child-his physical, mental, and social welfare.  In Country Kids’ full day program you will find the perfect balance of nurturing and educational experiences.  The personal touch is of  importance.

Your child will feel secure in the care of our teachers, but not too dependent upon them.  Your child is entitled to an opportunity to grow and develop under the most favorable conditions.  Your preschooler will be exposed to good and beautiful things.


In the Loop:

Your input is vital to understand you child in the context of his family.  Your beliefs, culture, family structure, how you discipline, what your preschooler like and dislikes, his strengths

and weaknesses, and your expectations all come into play and individualized daily program for your preschooler.  Your participation is welcome.  Planned individual conferences and an email system are just a few of the times our teachers communicate with you to create an environment of cooperation.

The Educational Component:

Country Kids follows the Connecticut Framework curriculum inclusive of personal/social, cognitive, physical, creative expressions domains (a detailed explanation can be found on our Curriculum & Assessment page).  Learning centers such as reading, art, science, computer, block building, and writing create an atmosphere of exploration and critical thinking.  Physical activities are made easy with their own playground and indoor gym.  Your child will be given a foundation of aesthetic and cultural experiences to enrich his life.  He will listen to good music and have a opportunity to make his own, allowing him to experiment with sound and rhythm.  Country Kids will provide him with beautiful childlike pictures, books, and literature.  In the full day program there is time to reinforce fitting into a social group, sharing, accepting disappointment, and accepting the consequences for actions.  Your child will leave Country Kids showing an eager interest in the world around him, free from unnecessary fears and inhibitions.


We encourage you to schedule a private tour and to and feel the personal touch unique to Country Kids.
