About Our Preschool
The Avon Early Learning Center at Roaring Brook School is an integrated, comprehensive early childhood program. Our program is available to Avon residents through the Avon Early Learning Center lottery or through the PPT process. Our program services students who are typically developing as well as special education students. Each classroom has one certified teacher and at least two paraprofessionals.
The Avon Early Learning Center at Roaring Brook School offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum that follows the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards (CT ELDS). The CT ELDS and the Connecticut State Department of Education Preschool Assessment Frameworks are utilized to provide your child with an educational experience that is appropriate to his/her stage of development.
Further information regarding the CT ELDS is available at: http://www.ct.gov/oec/site/default.asp
The Avon Early Learning Center at Roaring Brook School has begun the process to have our preschool become a nationally accredited early childhood program through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The NAEYC accreditation system sets the standard for excellence for families, the early childhood education profession as well as the public, and offers support to programs to meet the standards (NAEYC, 2018).
