Preschool Expo

The Preschool Expo is hosted by C3. This free event provides an opportunity to learn more about local preschool and childcare options. Developmental screenings for three and four year olds are also available.

In lieu of our Annual Preschooler's Expo, we have updated our Early Care and Education Program page and created a new Local Preschool Activities page!

A StoryWalk® is a fun way to combine reading with physical activity.  The story unfolds as you hike along the path reading signs created from pages of books. Our StoryWalk® is a collaborative project between the Cragin Memorial Library, C3, The Colchester Garden Club, the Colchester Land Trust, and the Town of Colchester. Durable, weatherproof permanent stations were purchased and installed by Jack Boyden with help from Troop 72 as his Eagle Scout Project. Visit Cohen Woodlands soon to discover books in an active way with a new story seasonally.
