About Us

A Division of the Bristol Boys & Girls Club Family Center

Our Mission

We are committed to the development of inquisitive and imaginative life-long learners.
Our unique environment inspires young children and families to investigate tangible, interactive learning experiences. 

The Imagine Nation community encourages and supports curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, confidence and citizenship.
On a daily basis, 126 children attend our NAEYC accredited preschool, while children and families from across the state and beyond visit to explore three floors that feature 12 interactive Museum Studios with a weekly schedule of STEAM-based initiatives and educational workshops. 
  • Imagine Nation, A Museum Early Learning is dedicated to providing affordable, accessible, high quality services for the Greater Bristol area. 
  • The Early Learning Center is an integrated part of the Boys & Girls Club of Bristol Family Center and continues to lead the way in early childhood education. 
  • Imagine Nation is inspired and has a membership with the Northern American Reggio Emilia Alliance
  • The Early Learning Center is separated from the museum studios by one floor and is apart of the preschools everyday learning experience. 
  • Programs and practices reflect the many policies and recommendations of NAEYC
  • We support our educators with training, resources and freedom to create unique learning experiences for our children.
