Welcome to Penny’s Playground!

Penny’s Playground is a licensed child care provider serving families throughout the greater Plainville and Southington communities with childcare and afterschool programs. We have multiple programs at our facility to accommodate all types of families and all ages of children. Since every family’s schedule is different, we maintain extended operating hours for early drop-offs and late pickups. We’re here to provide you with quality child care and your children with a safe learning environment.
Our Philosophy
Penny’s Playground principal commitment, philosophy & policy is to protect the children within our care. This center is an advocate for the child’s best interest. We believe it’s vital to offer as many experiences as possible to develop a child in every aspect of their young lives. At Penny’s Playground we’ll provide children with a superior quality & developmental program, challenging them in a positive manner. The program not only teaches academic skills but also works on their ability to work with others or alone, develop their creativity, manners & self-esteem in a fun energetic atmosphere. This center has a very strong family belief. We pride ourselves on our open door policy & assistance to parents in the development of each child. This healthy environment will encourage not only a child’s growth, but also the families & teachers’ as one unified unit.
Our Mission

We want to communicate to children the excitement of growing socially, emotionally, personally & intellectually into highly motivated respected individuals.
General Information
It’s important to ensure your child’s comfortable within our center. We want your child to take time to explore their new environment, meet the teachers & the other children prior to their 1st day. Once we receive the $25, registration fee you’ll receive the necessary forms for enrollment. The start date & one hour orientation date is determined. All enrollment forms (especially the physical signed from the pediatrician) & fees (security deposit & 1st week tuition if it wasn’t included with the registration fee), are to be handed in at this visit ensuring a smooth transition into the program. The Director or Assistant will conduct final visits with parents to review the forms & answer any questions or concerns. In regards to the contract please note a full-time slot is no longer than 10hrs per day & for those in school it’s no longer than 5hrs when schools in session. When you set your contract times we’re ensuring teachers are on site to maintain state regulated ratios. Arriving prior to AM drop-off time or after PM pick-up hours creates ratio issues & you’ll be charged as stated in Arrival/Departure section when it occurs. Please note your child will be accepted in our program on a 2-week probationary period as stated within the Probation & Termination section.
All employees of Penny’s Playground have signed a confidentiality form ensuring your child’s information is safely maintained. We request you label items with first name & last initial to assist with this. Also any documentation, which contains personal information, should be given directly to office personal.
Parent Involvement
We encourage positive family participation within the numerous activities at the center. At Parent meetings held 3-4 times per year we come together to discuss child developmental issues &/or environmental changes, plan events, fund-raisers & more. These meetings are a time to meet with other families to assist with forming a stronger bond between home & our center. It’s a relaxed social time, which assists in educating parents about the environment you’ve chosen to educate & care for your child as well as a time for you to contribute more to center activities & other decisions. To ensure all families are aware of the events at the center & within the community notes/flyers are posted on the main bulletin board. We encourage all families to sign-up for events (ex. Picnics, holiday gatherings), which assists with getting to know more about the program & our community.
