Quality Child Care

Learn & Play Christian Early Learning Center offers children ages 6 weeks to 5 years fulfilling age-appropriate child care and preschool education for families in Branford, Guilford and other Shoreline communities. Our caring and well-trained staff provide full-day and part-day programs grounded in the Holy Bible and exemplified by the love and teachings of Jesus Christ. 

Small class sizes allow for individualized success during whole class, teacher directed instruction. Child directed activity centers, enriched with hands-on experiences, engage each child’s natural curiosity and encourage exploration of God’s world at a child’s own pace.
