Room To Grow Preschool is a State licensed and Nationally Accredited facility that provides high quality care and education for children ages 3 to 5 years old who reside in Norwalk, Connecticut. Our capacity is 83 children; all grant funded through a School Readiness grant which requires that you are a resident of the City of Norwalk. These spots are available on a sliding fee scale based on family income.
Our curriculum is based upon the philosophy that young children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and experimenting. During the preschool years, play is one of the most fundamental activities of the developing child, providing the foundation of academic learning. The most important goal of our curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners.
The program wait list policy necessitates priority going to the siblings of families already enrolled or returning to Room To Grow. We currently have more than a 2 year waiting list so please plan accordingly.

Room To Grow has helped my family on three different occasions. First my niece, and more recently both my sons have attended RTG. Thirteen years ago my sister and her two children came from Colombia and had to leave everything behind, they arrived safely with a suitcase of clothes. My sister and I went to visit RTG and enrolled my niece into the school. That Christmas my sister was not able to buy anything for her children and Room To Grow provided lots of presents for them and made sure they had a happy Christmas.
When it was time for my sons to attend I knew that they were in a good school, will learn at lot and be ready for kindergarten. Room To Grow also offers other services to help the families. Last year my youngest son had an eye exam at school and we found out he needed glasses, and they made sure to help me find the right doctor for him. The teachers at Room To Grow have daily contact with the parents, and talk to you everyday about any concerns, accomplishments or achievements. They are like another family to the kids, so you feel really good about leaving you children at Room To Grow and going off to work.
