Be a Part of Our Child Development Programs

More Than 50 Years of Child Care Services

We are a federally funded, nonprofit organization governed by the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood (OEC). Our child care centers together form Mount Olive Child Development Center, INC, which provides comprehensive and high-quality daycare for children. Both of our centers are nationally accredited.

We understand that each child enrolled in our program has distinct likes, dislikes, skills, and capabilities. We are also aware that everyone comes from a different family and cultural background. Thus, we believe that good communication leads to better development, and we strive to attain this because our priority is to meet the children at their developmental level.

Dental Consultant
Community Events
Educational Consultant
Educational Field Trips Family
Health Consultant
Social Worker

Our Kindergarten Program

We serve children who are 5-years-old or who will be 5-years-old by December 31st of the current school year. Our all-day Kindergarten program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our curriculum has been developed based on the curriculums used in the surrounding school districts from which our students originate. This allows them to be better prepared for when they continue on to first grade.

The student to staff ratio allows for small group and individual teaching. Children are engaged daily in literacy, math and art activities, and rotate between science and social studies activities on a weekly basis. Through the different learning areas, children have the opportunity to develop social-emotional skills which is enhanced by our “Second Steps” curriculum.

The academic hours begin at 9am and conclude at 3pm. We offer before school care and after school care determined based on the parent’s work schedule. When the school year concludes in June, children have the option to remain for our summer program through mid-August. Breakfast, lunch, and snack are provided daily all-year-round.

Children are required to wear uniforms.
