Where Play is Serious Learning
About Our Program
Our innovative early childhood education program provides young children with an opportunity to explore, discover, create and grow through play-based learning–all in a safe and secure environment.
Through our child-centered approach, our passionate teachers help foster creativity and the curious love for learning that is innate in all children. We believe in nurturing the whole child through social-emotional, cognitive and gross motor development.
Why Our Program?
Our welcoming center cultivates learning at every age while offering exceptional care. Located at the Italian Center of Stamford, our unique program features:

- Swim Lessons
- Designated Gross Motor Room
- Wellness Programs
- Family Dinner Nights
- Special Events
and so much more!
We realize that the Education Station is your child’s home away from home. Therefore, our center uses Tadpoles, a revolutionary and password-protected technology program, which allows parents to feel like they are actually in the classroom with their child. Each classroom features an ipad that allows teachers to send photos, videos, updates and daily information (naps, meals, bathroom log, and activities) to every parent.
Our fully-licensed school is comprised of experienced and dedicated teachers who focus on the whole child and are committed to instilling a life-long love for learning in each child.
Our low student-teacher ratio goes above and beyond the state requirements which allows our teachers to provide individualized and small group instruction to further enhance each child’s early childhood experience.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” –Fred Rogers
