Preschool

Our three nationally accredited (NAEYC) preschool centers, located in Quincy, Randolph, and Weymouth, offer children (ages 2 years nine months through age 5) the opportunity to learn and make friends in a supportive educational environment. Each center is small and specifically designed for preschool children. Using the High Scope “plan, do, review” approach, teachers plan child-centered activities that are fun and spark exploration, creativity, and the mastery of new skills.

We also use the High Scope Children’s Observation Record (COR), which is a research-based tool, to enable teachers to assess each child’s developmental growth, strengths, and needs. Teachers use this information to develop and modify teaching strategies and curriculum for individual children, small groups of children, and their entire classroom. Teachers partner with parents to develop individual plans for each child and bi-weekly reports are sent home. Additionally, we provide ongoing assessment and quarterly progress reports to families.

Supports integral to the high-quality early education which we provide include:

  • A Preschool Program Director, who provides ongoing staff training.
  • A Social Worker, who assists staff and parents with behavior management, coping with family stress and finding needed resources.
  • A Registered Nurse, who provides consultation and information on health issues.

Program Highlights:

  • Each classroom’s teaching team of three is led by an experienced lead teacher with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in Early Education.
  • Each Center has at least one small classroom (15 or fewer children).
  • Classrooms are well-equipped with materials focused on language, literacy, math and science.
  • Our RISE Program (Reading IS So Exciting): Each classroom has a lending library of books and literacy materials for families to borrow, and each site offers four RISE family events each year.
  • Each Center has a playground offering numerous gross motor opportunities.

In Addition:

    • Breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks provided (children bring their lunch).
    • One teacher for every eight children.
    • Care is available Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
    • Sliding fee available, based on family size and income.
