Welcome to Mother Goose Children's Center

Welcome to Mother Goose Children's Center, located in the heart of South Windsor, Connecticut. The center is licensed by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood and has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) since 1992.

The center was established by Marjorie Glater and Sandra Kerns in 1973. It has grown from an enrollment of 13 children to over 150 children.

We offer a warm, nurturing environment with educational values that are developmentally appropriate and stimulating. We acknowledge similarities and diversities in children and encourage independence, self-confidence, and respect for others.

Our staff of certified teachers, assistants, medical personnel and onsite social worker provide the best quality care for your children.

You are always welcome to stop by and visit and see for yourself how Mother Goose is a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow.
