The Cornwall Child Center is a privately funded, nonprofit educational organization which was founded in 1974 to serve the youngest members of the Cornwall community and its surrounding neighbors. It is fully licensed by Connecticut’s Office of Early Childhood and holds accreditation from NAEYC (National Association for Education of Young Children). Our mission is to provide the best possible early childhood program offering a stimulating environment responsive to children’s natural curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn. The Child Center fosters social skills in a friendly, family atmosphere, and encourages the involvement of parents, community, and the school.


Children are blessed at birth with an avid desire to learn about the world around them – a desire that, if nurtured, will lead to a lifetime love of learning. In planning our curriculum, we want each child to experience the success and joy that comes from finding answers to questions by exploring and discovering rather than by being told. In simple ways, if we as teachers convey a sense of wonder and delight in our world, children will respond the same way.
