The Ridge Hill School

Tel: (781)871-0018
The Ridge Hill School is a private early childhood center.
Children may attend educational programs and receive child care services.
The school consists of two spacious indoor classrooms and an outdoor play area.
Total enrollment is limited to 44 children.
The student teacher ratio ranges from 8:1 to 9:1.
We are licensed for childcare through the Massachusetts Office for Children.
We often have student teachers and interns involved in the classroom.
The warmth, rapport and expertise of our staff is an important aspect of our program.
The school's philosophy emphasizes a child-centered developmental approach.
Children participate in both child-selected and teacher-planned activities.
Our goals are to keep children safe and healthy in an attractive and stimulating environment while providing a program which is individualized to meet each child's needs and developmental level.
Most important is the fact that all of this takes place in an atmosphere in which each child's self-esteem is put first.
Building self-esteem is the goal of interactions between child and caregiver, the curriculum, and even daily routines such as snack and clean-up.
