Tunxis Students,

I hope this message finds all of you and your families well.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tunxis employees and students are being given priority registration for preschool children at the Tunxis Early Childhood Center.

Preschool children can attend classes at our Center while Tunxis student parents are attending on-campus, online or hybrid classes or studying for their classes.

Classes begin on Wednesday, August 26th.  Our program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC).  We will be following the CDC Covid-19 protocols and procedures along with the OEC Covid-19 Guidelines to keep your child as safe and healthy as possible.

The schedule and rates are listed below.  Please call the Center at (860) 773-1350 with any questions or to register your child.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Debbie Collins, M.Ed.
