Our School Print E-mail

Maya and Raven

Located in Norwalk, CT since 1977, Carousel serves over 120 children, ages 6 weeks through 5 years. Our program is nationally accredited through NAEYC, is licensed by the State of CT Department of Public Health.

Carousel's researched curriculum combined with its high quality teaching staff seeks to close the achievement gap in CT by teaching science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) through play, using innovative materials that support developmentally appropriate practices with young children.



The Carousel community is made up of a diverse population of children, families, staff, all from various cultures, ethnic groups and nationalities, enabling our program to emulate life outside of the classroom.  It is one of our goals to provide children with administrators and teachers that are career-oriented professionals in the Early Childhood Education arena. The Carousel staff is required to enroll in a matriculating early childhood degree program and to further their study of early childhood education on an ongoing basis.
