Dear Families:

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself or re-introduce myself. My name is Casey Decoteau and I am the Studio Coordinator here at Riverside Magnet School at Goodwin College (Formerly Goodwin College Early Childhood Magnet School). I graduated from Goodwin College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Studies and I have been teaching at RMSGC (Formerly GCECMS) since September 2013 and in the Studio Coordinator role for a year now.

The Studio Program is our after school program. During Studio, children will be able to explore a variety of Reggio Emilia inspired enrichment opportunities, including, but not limited to musical exploration, gross motor experiences, outdoor learning time, time with construction materials (blocks, manipulatives) and opportunities to explore a variety of art materials. Children will be able to pursue their own interests in a safe, friendly environment, which supports the development of the “Hundred Languages of Children”.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in our Studio Program, please complete the mid year registration form. You can register your child for either our full-time Monday through Friday program, dismissal until 5:45 or the Friday only program, dismissal until 3:00.

If you have any questions, you can reach me at #860-709-6800 / #860-449-2518 or at


Casey Decoteau

Studio and Community Coordinator
