Welcome to The Marvin Children's Center

Connecting Generations

We opened our doors to serve children in November 1998 and we are funded by the State of Connecticut's School Readiness and Child Day Care Grant Program. Under One Roof, Inc. is an independent not-for-profit organization and is the owner and sponser of the Marvin Children's Center. They have selected Bright Horizons Family Solutions, the nation's leading provider of employer-sponsored childcare and early education, to serve as the manager of The Marvin Children's Center. Besides being a NAEYC accredited program, one of the exciting and unique aspects of our center is that we are an intergenerational program that brings seniors and children together on a daily basis!

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically. He always smiles when he sees you at drop off and we can tell he is happy. It brings so much peace of mind knowing our son loves going to school."
