If your child has struggled in other preschool programs, or if you’ve avoided enrolling your child in preschool because of behavioral issues, The Village’s Early Childhood Learning Center may be right for you.

Like all preschool programs, our goal is to promote learning, intellectual curiosity, creativity, independence, social skills, and physical development to help prepare children for kindergarten and beyond.

In addition, our staff are specially trained to help children with behavioral and/or emotional issues be successful. Wraparound supports, assessment and individualized instruction allows for children to thrive while they are in our preschool and provide a strong foundation for their formal K-12 education.

Not long ago, young Christian came to our preschool having been expelled from three other programs. His mother was distraught.

“We just felt hopeless,” she said. “It was one of the most heartbreaking things you can go through as a mother.”

Then, she heard about The Village. Christian was enrolled in our preschool, was evaluated by one of our clinicians and was referred to other Village services that helped treat his behavioral problems. Now, Christian is a successful student in grade school. Hear their story below.

Laila’s story is different. She came to The Village’s preschool during turbulent times for her family. Her mother had recently left an unhealthy relationship and relocated to CT. The stress of unemployment and no permanent place to live was taking its toll on Laila and her mother.  The Village’s preschool provided a nurturing environment for Laila, and The Village connected Laila’s mom with services to help her find housing. Hear their story below.

The Village preschool program is offered at a significantly reduced cost and scholarships are available.
