Old Lyme Children’s Learning Center

57 Lyme Street  • Old Lyme CT 06371  • (860) 434-1728

Our innovative preschool program the children enjoy an environment that allows discovery, exploration and independence, all within a secure and comfortable setting. The staff brings their enthusiasm and abiding respect for children to the program. The children in this program are ages 3 to 5 and are fully toilet  trained.


In this environment, the child has an impact on what their day will involve. There are specific areas such as the reading center, computer, blocks, water/sand table, play office, dolls, and tables for manipulative and art activities. The staff works hard to preserve a “child-oriented” program focusing on the interests of the children. There are structured circle activities during the course of the day which support this environment. But be prepared — our staff has been known to tutor children on the techniques of raising polliwogs and worms as well as the art of playing with mud! We truly believe that “play is a child’s work”.
