  • 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.
