Carousel of Learning

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family to Carousel of Learning. We are confident that your child will do well throughout our program. We strive to provide the ultimate safe, nurturing, and learning environment for your child.

The main objective of our program is to encourage and support the development of the individual, and to provide opportunities for self exploration and discovery. Since children are active and curious, it is our goal to provide learning experiences designed to stimulate your child’s creative learning abilities.

Since pre-school has become almost a prerequisite to public school, we make the atmosphere one of warmth and love so that the experience our children have during the first years in school is a positive one.

As this may be a new experience for you and your child, it may be a worrisome one. Please feel free to call us and we will gladly give you a progress report on your child.

Parsippany Child Day Care Center

The Parsippany Child Day Care Center was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1968. We opened with 20 children and expanded to meet the growing need for quality child care in our community. In 1980, we moved into a new building specifically designed for child care and owned by the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills. During the 1990s, we renovated with two additions to the building, which made room for infants and young toddlers. We are governed by a Board of Trustees, who are volunteers from our community.

Our facility was designed specifically for the care of children, and was built with HUD funding. Our center has a total of 7 classrooms, a large multipurpose room, a full service kitchen, offices, adult and children’s lavatories. We are in the process of updating our playgrounds to be in compliance with public playground standards for 2014.

Our center is comprised of a diverse population of families and staff. We come from a variety of backgrounds and speak multiple languages from all over the globe.

A very unique relationship exists between our center and Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills. Parsippany built the original building and owns it. A self-renewing contract allows for joint responsibility for repairs and building upkeep. Primarily the center maintains the building and the town maintains the property. We also have strong ties with civic organizations within Parsippany, including but not limited to the Kiwanis, Rotary and the Sons of Italy. We have fostered relationships with businesses, including Novartis.

We maintain a strong connection to the United Way of Northern New Jersey through a variety of programs. We are recipients of funds to support training and education through Child Development Associate certification, tuition assistance for families, and in previous years the Commercial Real Estate grant.

We are licensed to serve 131 children, but based on teacher ratios and best practices, our goal is to operate at 105 children.

We continue to improve our services through self-evaluation, self-reflection, technical assistance, continuing education and best practices. We maintain connections within the community through activities at the Parsippany High School, Baldwin Oaks Senior Center and other local community based organizations. We participate in civic events such as Parsippany Day. We support our families through a number of avenues, family breakfasts and lunches several times a year.

Morris County School of Technology

The Morris County Vocational School District actively seeks and supports community engagement. Business, industry and community partnerships are what make learning in our school different than a in a more traditional school environment.

There are a number of ways to become engaged with our school community such as – but not limited to – hosting students for Structured Learning Experiences (work study, internships, job shadowing, service learning projects, etc.), visiting classes as an Industry Fellow (guest teaching, hosting workshops, doing demonstrations, etc.), hosting a student or a group of students for a Field Experience (shadowing/field trip), providing opportunities/projects for authentic learning and assessment (givng a class a real-world project that fits their curriculum and will actually be evaluated and used outside of MCST), serving on specific program’s Advisory Council, and participating in and/or sponsoring school-community events such as Makers Day, HackMCST, Auto Show, and more.

Please keep in mind that proposals for partnerships are encouraged and valued. We wish that we could accommodate all proposals, however, each proposal will be subject to approval which will be based upon the following: curriculum alignment, feasibility (time, personnel, budget, equipment, safety, logistics) and, most importantly, learning potential for our students.
