Mary Immaculate Day Care Center is operated by the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and Mary Immaculate.  The congregation is found by Maria Emilia Riquelme and Zayas, originally from Spain in the year 1896.  Its charisma is the Adoration to the Blessed Sacrament, Education and Missions.  This center has been licensed by the State of Connecticut since 1979. Currently the convent operates the day care and retreat house for small groups.



Mary Immaculate Day Care Center strives to provide a safe and loving environment for all the children.  In this environment, we want the children to grow in a positive setting where they can learn self-respect, family values, healthy eating, sharing and caring, and above all, learn that God is a very special part of their lives.
