At Foundations For Learning Family Day Care, we believe that community involvement benefits both the charities/organizations that we support and the students/ families in our school. By encouraging young children and their families to participate in our outreach efforts we strive to:

  • Create meaningful connections with community members
  • Teach a sense of responsibility
  • Teach students that one person can make a difference
  • Teach tolerance and know that diverse individuals can be united by common cause
  • Help students learn early job skills (counting money, organizing activities, and working as a team)
  • Provide services and materials to those in need


Foundations For Learning in the South Windsor COMMUNITIES:
