Local Pre-Schools start registration process
http://www.leiladay.org Leila Day is a pre-school (nearly 3 up to kindergarten). They have sliding scale tuition.
http://www.bethesdanurseryschool.org Bethesda Nursery School (right down the hill from us) has some financial aid, and offers part-day programs. They also can take some children for fewer than 5 days a week.
http://www.stritahamden.com/category/st-rita-school-daycare/ St. Rita School, just over the Hamden line offers programs for children as young as 3 months.
http://www.jccnh.org/yeladim-early-learning-center The Jewish Community Center, located just over the New Haven line in Woodbridge, is not very convenient to the divinity school, but does offer financial aid, especially for early applicants. They take children as young as 3 months and you do not have to be Jewish to participate. This happens to be where my daughter spent a year, and I'd be happy to speak to anyone interested in the program about it (we had a great experience.)
http://www.wcnsplay2learn.org Another one not convenient to the Div School, but good for those on the West end of town is Westville Community Nursery School. It is not a full time program and has a variety of options and financial aid.
A very important resource to know about is Care4Kids--this is a program that helps low and moderate income families help pay for childcare. They have spots in a variety of programs in the area. Check them out: http://www.ctcare4kids.com
