Each year, Coventry holds a Town-wide early childhood Screen for children that are age 3 or 4. An early childhood screen serves as the first step in a prevention and intervention process that is intended to help children achieve their potential. Just like you bring your child each year to a pediatrician who screens their physical well-being, the preschool screen is an opportunity for your child to be screened for thinking skills, motor skills, speech and hearing. Knowing the health and development of your child is the first step to successful learning. The developmental, hearing and vision, speech and language screens are performed by staff members from the Coventry Early Intervention Services team of the Coventry Public School System. The Screen is free for Coventry residents. This year the Screen is scheduled for: November 19 from 9-12 pm and 3:30-6:30 PM. Please contact CECC at 860-742-4550 to make your appointment.
The Coventry Early Childhood Center (CECC), located in the Hale Early Education Center (on the Capt. Nathan Hale Middle School campus) still has a couple of openings in the school day program (6 hours per day). There is generous financial assistance available. For example, if a family of 2 is earning less than $10,000 they will pay $200/year for the program. A family of 4 earning approximately $80,000 will pay $2400 for the same program. Please contact CECC for more information at 860-742-4550 or contact us.
