Can a Landlord Rent to a Sex Offender when a Child Lives in the Building

My question involves criminal law for the state of: Connecticut

My landlord recently had an apartment become available in our building, and they evidently didn't do any sort of background checks before renting, as their new tenant is on the sex offender registry for 2nd degree child molestation.

We've been living here for nearly 7 years, and we have a special needs, very vulnerable, little girl. She's 7 years old, and mildly autistic, so explaining things like "stranger danger" and "good touch vs. bad touch" to her are extremely difficult. We don't feel safe with someone like that living literally less than 25 feet from her bedroom. We've been communicating with the landlord regarding this, but we're not certain yet as to whether or not they're going to be willing to move the person elsewhere. There is also an elementary school less than 1000 feet from the building.

What are my rights in this type of situation? Is a registered sex offender allowed to live in such close proximity to children, especially considering that his offence was specifically involving a child under 14? Is there anything we can do, short of moving out ourselves?

Thanks in advance for any advice on this. I'm stressing out hard over this, not just for my daughter's safety, but also for my own safety as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.
