Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
Provides nutritious foods and education to eligible pregnant women, postpartum women up to 6 months, breast-feeding women up to one year after birth and infants and children up to their 5th birthday. This program is income based, but for example a family of 4 in 2014 had to be earning less than $43,568 to qualify. Contact the ACCESS Agency at 860.450.7400 for more details.
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.
