This program is open to Hamden residents only. Starting July 2020, temporarily due to COVID, our hours are 8:00 am- 5:00 pm. and we are open year round. We have 80 state grant supported spaces for 3 and 4 year olds with eligibility and fees based on income and family size. Those spaces are for families who need a full time, 5 days a week program. We also have fee-only spaces with the fee based on a sliding scale. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) .
