Why choose our Shelton child care center?

Strong Start Early Care and Education is proud to offer high-quality day care in the Trumbull and Bridgeport area. In this blog, we’d like to highlight some of the reasons we think we are a great choice for you and your child.

Inquiry-Based Curriculum

  • This curriculum encourages the development of active learners, and that is what we believe all children are.
  • We emphasize self-regulation and confidence.
  • Our lessons are designed to address social, emotional,  and physical development as well as intellectual.

Kindergarten Readiness

  • Our curriculum helps prepare your pre-k child for kindergarten. Our curriculum conforms to the standards set forth in the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards. Not all daycares do this but we think a strong foundation in education helps a child succeed.


  • Instead of the 35 square feet required by law, we provide 50 square feet per child. We think this helps children learn better.
  • We have a dedicated indoor gym. It is 1,000 square feet and has kid-friendly rubberized flooring.


  • We offer full-time and part-time care on a year-round schedule, and will work with your family to accommodate your individual needs.
  • We are conveniently located on the Merritt Parkway, at the junction of the of Routes 8 & 25, next door to the Trumbull Movie Theater.


  • We integrate enrichment programs into all classes, so they are  available to all student, not just some.
  • Enrichment programs in language and literacy development and yoga (among others) help your child’s self-esteem and expand their knowledge of the world.
