MISSION
We are committed to providing a nurturing environment that fosters the growth and development of each child. In all that we do, we respect the individuality of our children, giving them the gift of time and the tools they need to grow into themselves.

PHILOSOPHY
The philosophy of our school is based on the well-proven educational theory that a child interacting in a developmentally appropriate environment will develop socially and emotionally while learning cognitive readiness skills, which are the foundation of later school experience. Our curriculum is supported by classrooms whose configuration allows a child to explore all the areas, each with a variety of materials, appropriate for their age and stage of development. Our commitment is to facilitate a child’s learning through process-based, rather than product-based experience. We utilize the Massachusetts Department of Education’s Early Childhood Program Standards and the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences.
