Each of our teachers complete an extensive training period based on Massachusetts State guidelines, and are first aid and CPR certified. Our teachers continue to increase their skills through additional workshops and trainings, to ensure that they are well equipped to develop and teach appropriate age level and developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the individual needs of each child. All of our teachers are genuinely loving and caring individuals with a true passion for teaching young children.
Our professional philosophy is based on our belief that children learn through play. Children learn best in the least restrictive, natural environment where they feel most comfortable and at ease. We are devoted to developing a warm trusting climate where we can share and celebrate milestones, while encouraging our children to become self-sufficient and master the daily task of the classroom.
Another important belief we have is that children have the right to choose what they want to play with and how they would like to play with it, providing it is safe to themselves and others. Our job as teachers is to facilitate learning opportunities for children in our care, keeping in mind that each child may learn a little different from another. It is our role as teachers to be able to recognize how each child best learns and adapt our curriculum and teaching style to the level and comfort of each child, even if it means adjusting our environment or changing the materials we are using.
We offer full days for infants, toddlers and preschoolers as well as 1/2 days for toddlers and preschoolers. (this is limited and based on availability)
We are open year round and have a regular school year program as well as a summer program, so your child can easily transition from one program to the next.
We have a weekly focus of letters, numbers, colors and shapes as well as a weekly theme; our teachers use a combination of pre-planned, structured activities along with teaching in the natural environment to optimize learning based on the individualized needs of each child.
