Thanks to the loving care of our teachers and nonprofit partners, our children enjoy Sandy Hook's beaches, paths, wildlife, and nature. Our program supports and encourages the sense of wonder innate to all children and inspires self-discovery and the exploration of the world around them.
The environment plays a vital role in the young lives of children at Sandy Hook Child Care Center. From their commute to school with their parents catching expansive views of the bay, to daily walks in the park discovering osprey in flight and horseshoe crabs on the beach, children enjoy first hand the experiences with nature that will inspire them through life. By instilling a love and respect for nature from a young age, our parents and teachers hope to raise happy, healthy and caring children who recognize the importance of experiencing the outdoors and crave its wonders and activities.
