Play to Learn

Play to Learn Childcare is a family-owned childcare center for 6 weeks to 5 years since 2017. We provide quality childcare in a loving, safe, and stimulating environment that enriches the children during their crucial years of development.

Our Story

Francheska aka Isa, our founder, worked for Stamford Public Schools as a teacher’s assistant for over five years. She also worked in two separate home daycares as a certified substitute for three years. She then became licensed to open her own home daycare called Happy Hearts Family Daycare.. During this time, she grew to love early childhood education more than ever and wanted to reach more families and this is when she expanded to a childcare center in 2017. This is where Play to Learn Childcare was born!

At Play to Learn, we take pride in our values. With these in place, we establish a positive environment for everyone!

Our staff and families are doing their best for the children. We want to meet each family where they are and help where we can.


Open and honest communication between the children’s family and our staff is important for the developmental and social-emotional growth of the child.

“As a first time mom during COVID 19 Play to Learn has made life simple for me & my little one to adjust to. They have provided a safe environment for my child & have constantly kept me updated throughout all changes. Picture mail makes my days go by & they have always just been a call/text away. The teachers in the Infant room have been angels to us and I owe it to them for getting me through my first year of motherhood. Now onto Toddler 1 and we couldn’t be more excited to grow with Play to Learn!”

“Finding a daycare that you can trust your kid to go to is hard to find, but we can honestly say this is a great place for our two-year-old. He loves going to school every day. The staff is consistent, easily accessible, reliable, and incredibly welcoming. The communication between the staff and the parents is phenomenal. With my wife and I both working in healthcare, the hours are extremely convenient. We would highly recommend Play to Learn Childcare.”

“Play to Learn is an incredible childcare center. As a Director at a homeless shelter and working closely with Francheska, the owner of Play to Learn, it has been amazing to see the love and care the children receive from her childcare center since 2018. She and her staff are always accommodating and available to meet with the parents from Inspirica – listening and attending to the family’s needs. When I refer the parents to Play to Learn – I know they’ll be in great hands. Francheska is such a great asset to the Inspirica organization. Thank you Francheska for all you do!”

“Both of my sons have attended Play to Learn and I have been satisfied! The staff are very attentive and loving to my kids. Isa the director is very flexible, accommodating, and her communication is awesome! I can text her at any time of the day and she always responds. I am very comfortable knowing my son is safe. I love how the staff ALWAYS incorporates learning while playing. My youngest son's vocabulary is getting much better and he is eager to go to school on a daily basis. I love everything about Play to Learn and if I have another child I wouldn’t hesitate to send them.”
John Doe Founder
“Francheska is the best! Most daycares work by the books but she's willing to work with you as long as you work with her. Also, my son has been attending since he was 3 months old & I was skeptical about having him around just anyone but he is now 6 months & I am seeing him break out of his shell more & more everyday thanks to Play to Learn. I would definitely recommend Play to Learn Childcare.”
