Tel: (617)696-2468
Grades: PK-K | 28 students
  • The Carriage House Schools offer a warm, nurturing environment for children to grow and learn.
  • Each child's self concept is greatly enhanced by the caring teachers' interacting with him/her on an individual basis, identifying his/her unique needs and abilities.
  • The developmental philosophy of the Carriage House Schools offers a secure environment in which a child experiments while forming a basis for successful relationships and fostering and openness to learning, so crucial in later years.
  • Based on the theory that children learn through play, our self directed activities allow children to "discover for themselves" while the staff act as enablers of learning.
  • Activities and daily routines are presented to challenge sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills, as well as offering practice of social and self help skills.
  • The goal of the Carriage House is to provide a life skills program that fosters each child's growth, because we believe that, "play is a child's work, children play to learn, to grow and to experience the world around them." We have created an atmosphere that entices each child to play and learn, providing the age appropriate tools to reach his/her maximum potential in a safe, loving environment.
