About Our Teachers & Staff
Our teachers are professional early childhood educators who believe that the first five years of each child's life are among the most important in their emotional, educational and personal growth.
Our teachers are all degreed in Early Childhood Education and are continuously attending courses that will enrich them and enable them to provide the very best education for our children. The supportive environment of our school enables us to enjoy a very low turnover in teaching staff which allows our students to learn in a stable, secure environment.
Our teaching staff consists of an Executive Director, 4 lead teachers, 8 teacher Assistants and 1 Cook. Our cook provides early breakfast, fresh hot lunches made on premises and nutritious snacks for all students.
Some of Our Offerings
Enrichment Programs - Our daily curriculum is enhanced by special programs in Spanish, Science, Music, Earth, Sciences and Yoga. Our program is enriched by having professionals in each of these fields come to our school weekly to provide the opportunity for our children to experience their particular area of discipline. We believe that by giving children this opportunity, they may find their own special area of interest that could continue well after their preschool/nursery school years.
Off-campus field trips – coupled with community appreciation activities and involvement are also an important part of our learning activities.
Computer Skills Development - Our school is equipped with Hewlett Packard preschool computers. They are an everyday component of our preschool program and children are allowed to practice and expand new skills, as their ability permits, and move on to higher skills of development.
Our History & Accreditations
The Children's Adventure Center was established in Newtown, CT in 1969 by a group of concerned community leaders as a non-profit organization to provide early childhood education and preschool education for local families. The Center is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected annually who provide a staff of experienced early childhood professionals.
We are accredited by NAEYC - THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE EDUCATION FOR YOUNG CHILDREN - a national organization whose goal is to raise the quality of pre-school Education through a stringent accreditation process.
Children's Adventure Center is also licensed by the State of Connecticut Public Health Services; State of Connecticut Board of Education; the Town of Newtown Health Department; the State Fire Marshall; and the Town Building Inspector.
We are open Monday through Friday, year round from 7 am to 6 pm, except for the 12 major holidays during the year and an occasional snow day.
