No decision is more important than to whom you entrust your child. We pride ourselves on our acclaimed early childhood education program.



Educator and author Nan Howkins started the Kaleidoscope Kids center in 1998 to address the lack of high-quality, affordable child care in the Ridgefield / Danbury area.

Today, our rates remain quite reasonable. Parents may
choose a regular schedule at weekly or part-time enrollment.

“My kids
attended from age 0 to 5, and this is simply the best childcare around.”

Giving families a choice is central to our philosophy. Parents have the option of setting a regular full-time or part-time schedule, or enrolling in our unique occasional-use “Flex Time” plan.

Those committing to a regular schedule may choose any days and hours, with a minimum of only 2 hours per day.

The “Flex Time” option lets you use the center only sporadically (i.e. snow days, transportation gaps, business travel, etc.). Participants may also change days or hours from week-to-week.


Open Monday to Friday year-round from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Closed:

  • Sept. 3 · Labor Day
  • Nov. 22 – 26 · Thanksgiving
  • Dec. 25 · Christmas Day
  • Jan. 1 · New Years Day
  • May 28 · Memorial Day
  • July 4 · Independence Day


Security is a hallmark of the center. We have an advanced door code system, child-proofing, and internal cameras that enable the director to monitor and assist teachers.

Watch Me Grow Secure Web Cams for Parents

View your child anywhere, anytime

We proudly offer the Watch Me Grow system – which allows parents to view children via video on a secure internet site.

You can have peace of mind by checking in on your child, and maintain the connectedness that comes from being able to say “I saw you dancing with a tambourine this morning”.
