Overview

BrightPath Mansfield Child Care, previously known as Educational Playcare Storrs, is a new-build daycare center designed from the ground up with every conceivable child care benefit in mind. Our state-of-the-art facility is located right in the heart of Storrs Center, a vibrant and active community of restaurants, shops, offices, and homes. Storrs Center hosts many community events throughout the year that we love to participate in. Our location is ideal for families living or working in the nearby region.

The center offers several parking spaces just outside our doors with many, many more spaces available in the parking garage located at the end of our street. Parking outside of the center is free for up to 30 minutes, and parking in the garage is free for up to 2 hours.
