Sharon Cowley has taken her Create Learning Center’s motto — to foster imagination and creativity for children to grow — to heart in the program’s first year. In nine months, classes at the preschool at 463 Danbury Road have grown to full-size with two-, three- and four-year-olds.
Now, Cowley not only wants her students to use their imagination, she also wants to enhance community involvement.
Giving back to the community is an essential skill she wants her students to learn and the newly created garden behind the preschool is going to help with this plan.
The preschool’s garden is full of almost every kind of herb along with many other foods — from zucchini to watermelon to garlic.
