CREC Head Start

The CREC Head Start and Early Head Start Program serves children based on need and eligibility according to the federal Head Start guidelines. Head Start programs serve children ages birth to five from low-income families, promote school readiness and support children’s growth and development of the whole child, in a positive learning environment. Comprehensive services include:

Early Learning: Children progress in social skills and emotional well-being, along with language and literacy learning, and concept development

Health: All children receive health and development screenings, nutritious meals, oral health and mental health support. Programs connect families with medical, dental, and mental health services to ensure that children are receiving the services they need.

Family Well-Being: Programs support and strengthen parent-child relationships and engage families around children’s learning and development.

Enrolling in CREC Head Start does not provide you direct enrollment into a CREC Magnet School.

The Learning Experience – Academy of Early Education – opens Feb. 3, 2020

Located at 88 Executive Square in Wethersfield, The Learning Experience has programs for kids ages 6 weeks through 6 years. The foundation of The Learning Experience® was built on three key educational and care principles: cognitive, physical, and social; or as we say at TLE®, “learnplay, and grow!”

LEARN  Core Academic Skills. Our proprietary L.E.A.P.® (Learning Experience Academic Program) guarantees children will graduate TLE® with exceptional core academic skills that will start them on the path to a bright future. At TLE®, we know each child develops at their own pace, so our curriculum is designed to provide experiences for children that promote academic competency along with a mastery of developmental tasks, no matter what learning stage they are in.

PLAY Fitness and Healthy Lifestyle Skills. At TLE®, children are taught to engage in a variety of controlled and safe activities that encourage them to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle at an early age. Healthy food choices are provided daily while our teachers foster an awareness of proper nutrition.

GROW Life and Comfort Skills. TLE® embraces important practical and real-world matters that most other early learning institutions often ignore. Our proprietary Philanthropy Program lays the foundations for children to become respectful and well-mannered people by teaching them the value of selflessness, sharing and giving.

The Learning Experience is now offering tours for families – call 860-785-8889 to schedule a visit.
