Civic Organization

In 2003, a handful of Cornwallians got together and decided to create our own community endowment, the Cornwall Foundation. Throughout our brief history, we have worked hard to balance the twin missions of a community foundation: supporting the efforts of the town’s charities and institutions while building an endowment to meet the needs and opportunities of the future.

The Cornwall Child Center is a privately funded, nonprofit educational organization which was founded in 1974 to serve the youngest members of the Cornwall community and its surrounding neighbors. It is fully licensed by Connecticut’s Office of Early Childhood and holds accreditation from NAEYC (National Association for Education of Young Children). Our mission is to provide the best possible early childhood program offering a stimulating environment responsive to children’s natural curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn. The Child Center fosters social skills in a friendly, family atmosphere, and encourages the involvement of parents, community, and the school.
