Thinking of enrolling your child at Women’s League? Take the first step


Can you see the scientists of the future?


With your help, we are creating one of the first STEAM labs of its kind for preschool children in Hartford!

The plans are underway to transform the second floor of Women’s League into a fun, stimulating, flexibly designed, hands-on educational lab where Hartford’s youngest children can explore their curiosity in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Our target for the STEAM lab to be up and running is January 2023.

Your generosity will do this:

Give children the joy of learning about insects, butterflies, seeds, soil, ramps, weather, machines, planets, construction, and much more.

Give Hartford’s children — regardless of their family’s income — the same access and opportunity as their suburban counterparts for STEAM foundational learning.

Nurture the Black and Brown scientists, technology professionals, engineers, and mathematicians of tomorrow — currently severely underrepresented in STEAM careers (which offer the most opportunities and income!)

Our goal was to raise $30,000 to renovate and equip our new STEAM learning lab. Your giving exceeded our wildest dreams. Thank you!

$73,000 Raised

Your generosity will provide toddlers and preschool children with:

  • microscopes, petri dishes,
    and little lab coats
  • a mini-greenhouse
  • ramps, wind tunnels, and
    conveyor belts
  • magnetic wheels and blocks
  • books, software, and art supplies
  • building materials and toy machines
  • computer stations
