We have been a Learn and Play family for the past four years. Both my boys started attending at 4 months old and we are so happy with their experiences. The teachers have become like family and love my kids like they are their own. They post photos, food details, and nap information daily through the Brightwheel app. My husband and I can’t help but smile when those notifications pop up on our phones! We see our boys learning, socializing, and developing a love for God at Learn and Play. The director, Miss Venera, is kind, loving, transparent, and communicative. I highly recommend Learn and Play to local friends looking for a safe, supportive, and student-centered option for their littles!

My girls, three and one, have both attended Learn and Play since they were 4 months old. I will never forget the hug on the first day from a teacher realizing I was falling apart leaving my first born. That feeling has been the same for our whole tenure at Learn and Play. Venera has ensured that the kids are always the first priority and each teacher has shown love and compassion at all times. Covid has changed some of the protocols- but it hasn’t changed the comfort we feel with having our girls there. I highly recommend Learn and Play to any family in need of child care

With the birth of our first child we were naturally quite nervous about handing our little one over for her first day of daycare. The teachers at Learn and Play were wonderful and made us feel safe and comfortable. Knowing our love was in excellent hands allowed us nervous, first-time parents to get through our work day with ease. Since then, we have continued to love and appreciate the excellent care that Learn and Play provides for our girl. We are always kept updated on how she is doing and are so happy that she has made friends along the way! We cannot thank all of the teachers enough for their individualized care and support of our growing child!

My two boys have been with Learn & Play since they were infants.I can’t begin to express what a gift this daycare has been – especially over the last year. Miss Venera along with her staff have created a loving, safe and nurturing environment to help support my children as they grow and develop. My boys truly love their teachers and look forward to going to school every morning.

Our 2-year-old son attended two other daycares before Learn & Play. This diverse exposure to other facilities has allowed my wife and I to appreciate the truly outstanding services provided at Learn & Play. 

First, Learn & Play is the only Christian based daycare that we could find in our area, and we believe that it is important to teach our child Christian values at an early age. We know other parents who send their kids to Learn & Play all the way from New Haven to take advantage of its strong faith-based care and education. Another local daycare held within a church does not incorporate Christian faith in its curriculum. We think that Learn & Play is not only offering an excellent daycare service, but it is also raising future Christian leaders in the New England area. 

In addition, as parents, we find the structured learning environment at Learn & Play invaluable. Other daycares seem to provide a babysitting service with little or no learning activities. Finally, our son seems to be very happy at Learn & Play. He usually cannot wait to leave the other daycares we have tried, but, in contrast, there are many days when he does not want to leave Learn & Play. The program at Learn & Play has been unique and special to us.
