Round Up for The Children’s Room & The Community Campus

May 29th, 2024

We are excited to share with you a little bit about the work of our May/June Round Up partners! The Children’s Room in Waterbury and The Community Campus in Woodstock are both non-profit organizations that provide space for children to learn, socialize, and grow. Read on to learn more about the good these programs do for our communities!

Waterbury: The Children’s Room

The Children’s Room in Waterbury, VT, provides a free drop-in play space for families with children ages 0-6. The program started in 1984 and has served thousands of children and caregivers over the past 40 years by providing a space to build community with peers. The children gain experience in a social setting and are on their way to being confident in the classroom. In addition to socialization and play for small children, The Children’s Room acts as a resource hub for parents and caregivers. They offer suggestions and programming for playgroups, parent meet ups, and support groups.

Some of their excellent weekly programs include Music & Movement, where kids and parents can sing, dance and play instruments and Nature Explorations which involves fresh air and hiking trails!

The Children’s Room also hosts special events such as Big Toy Night. The children bring their trikes and bikes to the gym for a few hours of cycling fun!


Woodstock: The Community Campus

The Community Campus (TCC) started in 2020 as an away-from-home learning center but has developed into a year-round non-profit that supplies after-school, summer camp, and special event programming. They provide care for children ages 5-12, allowing parents and caregivers to complete their workday knowing that their children are supervised and safe. TCC incorporates play, creativity, and learning for a day that fulfills the social-emotional needs of the kids.

TCC has the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in their backyard, which enables them to get out in nature, explore, and learn more about the area in which they live. In addition to daily fun and learning, summer camp includes engaging field trips, such as hiking, rock climbing, and visiting interactive museums.
