Shaker Family Center Facility
The Shaker Family Center building, formerly Sussex Elementary School, houses Family Connections in addition to two independent early childhood programs: Carol Nursery School, and Early Childhood Enrichment Center.
Located in the quiet, tree lined Sussex neighborhood, the Shaker Family Center facility offers a variety of grassy areas and playgrounds, and a charming seasonal Learning Garden, perfect for young children.
Ample parking is on the streets surrounding the facility or in the parking lot located off Lomond Boulevard. Nearby is the Van Aken District.
The former Coventry Elementary School is home to Family Connections in Cleveland Heights. We share space with the CH UH Archive Room and other non-profit organizations: ARTFUL, Coventry Children's Center, Future Heights, Reaching Heights, Ensemble Theater Company, Lake Erie Ink, and Urban Oak School. Within our Coventry facility, families will find our inviting Family Playroom and a large muscle room where children can play indoors on slides, climbers and trikes. The Coventry Building is also a base of operations and home to literacy materials used within our school-based programs, and other off-site programs.
Right outside our doors is the Coventry P.E.A.C.E Park, and we are a “stones throw” from the Coventry branch of The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library and Coventry Village, home to many great shops and restaurants.
