About Kid Connection
Our Kid Connection Preschool, located at the Recreation Department Building at 263 Main street is designed to create a community of learning and provide a rewarding preschool experience for each child. Kid Connection has been serving the Winchester community for over 25 years, and we pride ourselves on the longevity of our dedicated teachers and our low teacher to child ratio. Theme-based curriculum combines learning through play with teacher directed activities to support early childhood learning and social emotional development in a nurturing environment. Enrichment activities throughout the year include music, yoga, gymnastics, local field trips, and more. Our convenient location provides us with large classrooms and an expansive outdoor play area including a new sport court build this past spring. We respect each parent as their child’s first educator and welcome your involvement in your child’s care and education as we build a cooperative relationship between teachers, children, and their families. Kid Connection is a school year program that mirrors the Winchester Public School calendar and is licensed by The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).
