Notre Dame Children's Class

Grades: PK-2 | 49 students
Notre Dame Children's Class in Wenham, Massachusetts is more than a place; it is a composite of children, parents, and teachers who value and actively support the importance of learning in an environment that responds, nourishes, and respects the potentialities of the individual person.
By "environment" we mean, the simultaneous interaction of children, adults, and the physical components of the plant.
Our strength as an education unit comes from the membership of fifty families enrolled at our school.
They represent more than eight communities on the North Shore of Boston.
At Notre Dame Children's Class we directly serve the children of ages three to eight from these families.
As parents and teachers we mutually value learning as a life process.
We seek to create and maintain a school/home environment where children and adults, in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect, can be encouraged to develop abilities, values, and a sense of self-respect and self-discipline which will serve themselves and society.
