Welcome to Play Smart Family Child Care

Play Smart is an educational, family-based child care facility serving families with children from young toddlers through preschool age. Our family based child care offers both a nurturing home atmosphere and a stimulating environment with opportunities to explore, learn and grow.

Play Smart engages children in an educational program that is based on Mother Goose Time Preschool Curriculum, which fosters a joy for learning through sensory-based experiences. This curriculum helps children gain academic knowledge as well as develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and social skills to promote their social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.

We meet all the requirements established by the State of Connecticut Licensing for Family Child Care Programs. We are currently in the process of accreditation by the National Association for Family Child Care.

Play Smart operates under a small license capacity (no more than 6 children) with a 1:3 ratio (one teacher per three children). We are located on the border of Westport and Weston, just 2 miles north of the Merritt Parkway and 1.5 miles south of Weston Public Schools. Click here for directions.
