School Notes

  • Little Theatre School has been educating young children in the MA north shore areas for 3 generations since 1944.  At Little Theatre School, we recognize and respect each child as an individual.  Our mission is to create a wonderful first learning experience that will establish a strong foundation for your child`s education future.  Our developmentally appropriate early childhood education program is founded on four core values: MUSIC-PLAY-MOVE-LEARN.  Children learn naturally through observations, engaging interactions, sensory rich experiences, positive role plays and stimulating activities.  Using the best of traditional and current teaching methods, we expand your child`s world by helping each student acquire new knowledge and skills, make and nurture friendships and learn to be their own person.  Small class size allows us to know each child and adapt our teaching to optimize the student`s essential experiences.   Communication with families is two-way, open and sincere.
