The Imagine Nation Preschool Learning Center is a state licensed, NAEYC accredited early childhood education program located in the Imagine Nation Museum. Our infant/toddler classroom services eight children from the ages of six weeks to three years of age, and utilizes the Creative Curriculum and State of Connecticut Early Learning Guidelines. Our preschool program is comprised of seven School Readiness Funded classrooms, servicing 103 children from the Bristol community between the ages of three and five. The preschool utilizes the State of Connecticut Preschool Curriculum and Assessment Frameworks, Developmentally Appropriate Practice, elements of the Creative Curriculum, and Bloom’s Taxonomy to encourage higher order thinking. Our unique location of a hands-on children’s museum has led to the development of “Imagine Learning!”, an innovative integration of a preschool program’s curriculum into a children’s museum. “Imagine Learning!” is designed to take learning experiences for children to the next level, extending the curriculum into museum exhibits and providing intentional teaching opportunities related to the museum’s “10 Study Units”.
The Imagine Nation Preschool Learning Center’s mission is to create and provide an environment that inspires and enables all young people and families to mature into caring, responsible and productive citizens. We are committed to providing the highest quality early learning experience and the development of the individual child in areas of critical thinking, problem solving, independence, self-reliance, self-confidence and creativity in relation to the social values of family, community, and cultural background.
