We used Stork Club in Glastonbury and I believe they provided lunch. They were also the most reasonably priced and one of the smallest. I liked that everyone knew everyone else there. Jay

Is Windsor Locks too far away for you? If it isn't, I highly recommend New England Preschool Academy. They do provide lunch and have an excellent program there! My son (20 mos) attends this center and my older son (5 years) goes to the NEPA in Enfield. I really cannot say enough good things about the director, teachers, and staff at both of their centers!

We used the Stork Club in Glastonbury, which is a sister center. We were pleased with them. Jay

My family (spread all over CT) has used many of the Stork Clubs. They are the best! Fair prices, warm and inviting! We provided our lunches for our kids, as they only provide snacks (AM & PM) Our kids have come home every day happy and we are so blessed to have such wonderful people in all centers looking after our kids!

I had my daughter in the stork club in glastonbury, they do not offer lunch, u have to pack your own and also a child escaped from there last year and was found down the street, wouldnt recommend it. For a little bit more you should definitely go to kindercare in glastonbury, the staff is amazing, when i had to pull my daughter out, i actually got teary eyed. they provide breakfast, snacks and lunch and have a chef. it is amazing. 5 stars!

We found Kindercare to be cold and too big for our liking. We did not like the set up. It is a corporate run facility and it shows. It lacks warmth and is laid out strangely IMHO. Our kids would not have been able to interact with each other unless they changed their set up since we looked at it.

If we were to choose a place right now, I would probably go with Aloha on Hebron Avenue. It is a smaller family run place. But then again, that is just me and my wife. Jay

Kindercare IMHO is one of the worst corporate centers.

My wife who has been in the profession for almost 20 years took a position there as a director and literally walked out after about 6 months. She's at Bright Horizons now.
