Founded in 1917, the Women's League has deep roots in Hartford's community.
The Women's League Child Development Center is especially designed for children as a home away from home and considered the jewel of the neighborhood. From our origins serving a dozen or so children, we now have a staff of over 50 and are licensed to serve up to 212 children ranging from infants, toddlers and preschoolers to kindergartners through 12 year olds in a before/after/vacation/summer program. Women's League, Inc was the first inner city program to become accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood /NAEYC.
From its inception, we have expected that families contribute whatever they are able to afford toward the costs and responsibilities of care for their children. Families are an intrinsic part of our program, planning and vision. Our open door policy encourages families to visit and participate. Our events depnd upon family support and involvement. We fully accept the responsibility of educating families as well as children.
The children and families of Women's League Child Development Center are from Hartford and surrounding towns, reflecting a wide demography. At this time, 94 percent of parents are employed, in training or in the school. 82 percent of the parents are young, single, minority group members, many of whom have recently left public assistance and have difficulty finding affordable child care. We make every effort to be there for the families and children most in need of our service.
And... We are growing! Women's League is building an extension to allow us to meet the demand for infant and toddler care. By 2010, we will be serving 88 more children in our new facility.
