Great service 9/7/2016

I have been using Educational Playcare since March of this year. They provide me with wonderful daycare services for my daughter. All of the people there are really friendly and nice, and also professional. I will continue to use Educational Playcare in the future. Also, I will recommend them to my friends and family members who may be looking for a daycare provider or any one of the other services they provide for children. I am very happy with them. more

Excellent 8/22/2016

I have really been satisfied with the quality and care received at Educational Playcare. I feel the entire experience over all is well above average and I would certainly recommend them to anyone in need of a good child-care facility. I understand that it can be difficult to always stay on top of everything every single time. But they really have always done such a great job and they have always welcomed any questions or concerns I have ever had. In fact, there have been times when I felt that the communication was inconsistent and that it was not up to the standards I expected. However, the moment I mention any issue to a director, it gets handled and resolved right away. Their response time is really great and it makes me feel like they listen to my concerns. They make it a point to make sure I never feel like I am bothering them. They genuinely hear me and then they respond. I feel valued and respected every time. Over all, Educational Playcare does a great job and I am very satisfied with the child-care received there! more

Excellent company worth any penny! 8/9/2016

I think Educational Playcare are absolutely fabulous. Every day I feel safe leaving my daughter in their care and from what she says she really loves it there. I have built up a friendly relationship with a number of the staff they have and they are all wonderful and very good with my daughter. Their care is worth every penny even if their prices are a bit high. I would recommend them to all my friends and family with young children! more

If you are a parent looking to take your child to Educational Playcare, do so without a doubt! 7/22/2016

Educational Playcare watches my child twice a week and they are fabulous. The instructors have a great affinity towards the children and their level of care is comforting as a parent. I really like the activities and programs they provide and my kid is happy, which makes me happy. more

Home away from home 6/28/2016

We absolutely love Educational Playcare. I know when my daughter is there that they take of her as if she were their own. She learns, she plays, she is active, taught life skills, and has made great friendships with her peers. Could not ask for more! more

Excellent child centered place to learn and play 6/25/2016

I have been to Educational Playcare several times and am always impressed with the professionalism of the staff., especially how they attend to the children. I enjoy being included in knowing what my grandson will be learning each week and what's on the menu. its so sweet to hear him say that he loves his teachers. more

The Best Care and Educational experience 6/24/2016

We have 2 children at EPC. This is the best you can find for your children. Amazing, caring and super accommodating teachers. Everyday my children involved in a huge variety of play, learning experience, yoga, music, play, and explorations. EPC provides healthy snacks and lunches and sends a ton of picture updates throughout the day. My kids are always looking forward to going to "school". It is the BEST. more

We couldn't be happier! 6/21/2016

Educational Play Care is amazing! The caring, nurturing environment they provide our daughter with makes it so much easier to leave her every day. The activities they do with even the babies are great - painting, music, yoga, sign language just to name a few. The teachers really know the needs and personalities of each child and go out of their way to make sure their needs are met. The Tadpole App they use to send pictures througout the day is the best! We can see what she is doing and how happy she is. Knowing how happy she and seeing how much she is learning reassures us that EPC was the right choice for us! more

Best decision I ever made! 5/9/2016

I love the interaction that Educational Playcare provides from home life to school life. They are huge with cooperation and being on the same page with parents. I am just in love with this school because I have foster children and my son had a slight behavioral problem- understandably, with all the confusion in his life- and he has excelled beyond measure at Educational Playcare. It is absolutely wonderful what they have done with my kids. I pay a lot more than what my daycare stipend covers but it is so worth it. The teachers' interactions with the kids is what sets them apart. It is not a school that just goes by the book; they take each child individually and work their way around each child. They make sure they each learn in their own way and are cared for and nurtured in their own way. When my son comes back from visiting his biological mother, which can be hard sometimes, his teacher is always very encouraging of his attitude. I highly recommend Educational Playcare to everyone. They are an amazing group of people! more

Exactly what I was looking for. Awesome all around. 4/15/2016

We've been with Educational Playcare a couple of months and granted they just opened in January and we started sometime in February. Initially, we were at a daycare and they were the same amount of money that Educational Playcare but I felt like it was a glorified babysitting agency and they kind of promised things that they didn't actually do, like taking pictures or putting the schedule on the wall so that we could look to see what was going on, but I never saw that actually happening. I didn't feel at all like he was getting an education experience and their brains are such sponges at this age, I want to make sure that he gets the best experience possible. We didn't need him to go to daycare, we have two adults at home so we don't need it, but I sent him for socialization and I was hoping, also for education. They did not provide lunch there, which they do here and it wasn't a big deal but it's a nice bonus. I started looking for places and the fact that there were opening just down the road from us was like a blessing really. It was exactly what I was looking for! So, I went to see it and it was so new clean and really it was just awesome. And then the teachers and everything that they do over there, it really is awesome. I show everyone at work, it's very cool! My sister says she wishes they had this when her kids were younger. I love the teachers, the place, the station and the program and there are so many pictures and the daily logs, all around, it's just awesome. And I am so so pleased. more

We like what they do with the kids 3/31/2016

We really like Educational Playcare, and so do our kids! We really like all the programs and activities that they have that really stimulate our kids and help them to grow. These guys are very accommodating to our work schedules which is super convenient. They do a really good job of communicating with us and keeping us up to date on what the kids are doing or have done. They also do a ton of promotions which is really cool and very nice for us parents. I would definitely recommend them as they are a very fine establishment and our kids are always excited to be dropped off there! more

Really willing to work together with the parents 3/28/2016

If I could, I would give Educational Playcare a 10/5 for quality! I like that they have a a really kid-centered approach. They really take the time to know my children and know what works best for them and what their needs are. more

They're great 3/9/2016

We started using Educational Playcare in September. It was one of the best daycares we've had and we went to 3 daycares, so I have a lot to compare it to. The quality of care is great. The communication with parents is awesome. We have two children there. The teachers are very nice and ready to talk. Both of my kids are learning a lot of things and are very busy all the time. Even with the babies they do a lot of activities. Originally we were driving 50 minutes out of our way because we liked it so much. Now we go to a closer one. more

Good communication from caring staff 3/9/2016

Educational Playcare is very good at sending out e-mails on what concerns our daughter and what is happening each day and week. I work about 45 minutes away, so it is nice to have constant updates. Our daughter has been going there for close to two years and their communication and Tadpoles app has impressed us. My wife and I did quite a lot of research about where we wanted to send our daughter before choosing Educational Playcare. The staff and teachers I've met along the way have been very caring and consistent. I have seen the same faces for the past two years and I think it is great. It is kind of nice to know they do a good job of retaining their employees, and it says a lot. more

Very Postive and Warm 2/4/2016

Educational Playcare is a really great center for our child. I think their prices are competitive. My child have been attending Educational Playcare for about 2 months now. I like how they keep you updated throughout the day on the progress of your child. It's a really good policy that they have implemented to make the parent and child feel safe while in their care. Their staff listens to you if you have any concerns. They have a really positive and warm attitude. more

AMAZING 1/5/2016

This daycare is the most amazing daycare I have ever seen; my children run to their class when they are brought in, a feeling as a parent that you cannot compare. In one month my son has become fluent in his ABCs, 123s, colors & shapes when he was just a beginner experience the words before. My newly just turned 2 year old points out shapes and colors! The organization & structure is like no other, and cannot compare. My children love their caregivers and we couldn't be happier. more

Very positive experience and I plan to send my other children there eventually 12/23/2015

It was my first time using Educational Playcare. I was very satisfied with how they work and love how they are very flexible and accommodating with their scheduling. I find their pricing to be reasonable. Also, I really like the curriculum they provide for the children. Their cleaning products are natural and they provide the children with healthy snacks and lunch. In addition to this, the kids are learning the whole time. It truly is a great program.! more

The Future of Childcare and Preschool is Here!

Owner Message

  • Today, the importance of positive childhood experiences, starting from infancy, and their relation to future success in life is universally understood. It was not so when we began in 1986. When we originally selected the name Educational Playcare, it was because of our understanding of the importance of play in order for learning to take place. We also knew the importance of providing a nurturing, secure, joyful and stimulating environment. Children learn best through direct experience. We believe that this direct experience is best gained through play, for play is the work of children. It is through play that children develop concepts about themselves and the world around them. Our goal is to provide the ideal environment to support the work of children. Educational Playcare was established in 1986 to provide full and part-time childcare and educational programs for children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. We are proud of our reputation as the provider of the highest-quality childcare, nursery school, and preschool programs for children that can be found anywhere. We have distinguished ourselves by providing exceptional services through being consistently at the cutting edge of technology as it applies to the early childhood industry and we have maintained these high standards with the quality control that comes from being owner operated. Despite our relatively small size, however, we are still able to offer all of the benefits of the large corporate child care centers and more! It has been our privilege to provide childcare services to thousands of families in Connecticut. In fact, some of our previous students have come back to work for us and help nurture the next generation! Full and part time childcare programs for children from 6 weeks to 12 years old.
