Our Preschool seeks to provide children with an environment that is fun and exciting, and at the same time challenging. We offer a Christian atmosphere of caring and acceptance and operate by values that are shared with the Church of the Nativity.
The philosophy of our preschool program is based on
the developmental approach to education.
The children will participate in self -motivated learning through active exploration and interaction with children, adults, and materials.
Our Preschool is inspected and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care, and all our staff are fully trained, licensed, supervised, and background-checked. Coordinated by our Director, the School operates under the authority of the Vestry (Church Board) of the Church of the Nativity.
Our preschool runs from September- early June from
9 AM - 12 PM. We offer 2 or 3 days a week for our preschool students, and 3, 4, or 5 days for our
Pre-Kindergarten students. We follow all public school holiday closures and school vacations.
