Our Classrooms

Where Kids Love to Learn

The Women’s League Child Development Center has been consistently rated as one of the ten best child development centers in the Greater Hartford region.

Our programs follow a developmentally-appropriate curriculum that encourages active inquiry-based learning. Early learning sets the foundation for future success. That’s why our teachers plan instruction from their observations of children and their expressed interests, focusing on their physical, emotional, cognitive and language skills.

We also actively engage parents, caregivers and families as partners. We recognize that they are their children’s first teachers and that by working together, we can propel children to success— as they reach kindergarten, and beyond.

We organize our classrooms and design learning activities according to a research-based Creative Curriculum.

Our dedicated teachers:

  • Develop positive relationships with children

  • Foster children’s’ emotional competences

  • Construct purposeful play

  • Partner with families

  • Carefully design the learning environment of our classrooms

At our Center, you’ll find:

  • Seventeen classrooms

  • One infant room

  • Eight toddler classrooms

  • Eight preschool classrooms

  • A before and after school program

Infants and Toddlers

We care for infants three to 17 months of age and toddlers from 17 months to three years old. Each child’s unique needs are addressed by a caring staff people with specialized training in child development. Children learn by being actively involvement in a safe, healthy environment. We help infants develop language, social, motor, and other important skills. When infants are ready, we encourage floor play, tummy time, and crawling.


Three and four-year-old preschoolers are encouraged to make choices, ask questions, explore, solve problems and be creative. At the same time, they advance their understanding and respect for other children in the program.

School Age

The school age program provides before and after school care for children up to grade 3. This program also offers opportunities for care on half days and school holidays. This program is suspended at this time, while school is not in session. Stay tuned for details on when and how the School Age program will begin operating.
