  ~Mini K, Mini kindergarten is for children who want to stay on for the following reasons:
  ​Your child misses the September 1st cut-off for kindergarten,

​  Your child is just not quite ready for public school kindergarten. 
You are​ welcome to stay on here and enjoy our curriculum rich in kindergarten education. Massachusetts law requires that each child must attend a formal school beginning in September of the calendar year in which he or she attains the age of six.

​~ABOUT US:
Our program is fully licensed and our staff is certified by the state of MA.
We have been in business at this location since 1993. We do one thing here and we do it well, that's to teach our preschoolers as much as we can and have as much fun as possible doing it. ​Our staff Miss Yvonne and Mr. Walter are owners and educators. Miss Yvonne is the director of programs and the teacher of one of the best curriculums around. Mr. Walter is the chef behind our delicious home cooked meals, snacks and maintains the school. He tells the best jokes and can fill 100 water balloons in the shortest time. Being part of our program is being part of our school family. There are many benefits of belonging to a small private preschool (10 students) from warm welcomes in the morning to the way the educators and the families get to know each other and through the friendships that develop among our kids. The individual attention and care your child receives is second to none as well as the learning experiences that are designed around your child's development. Many years of tried and true practices have gone into our plan to help your child achieve self confidence, independence and formal school readiness.

​​~OUR CURRICULUM:
Is both developmental and academic supporting the whole child through positive reinforcement. The developmental aspect of our curriculum is play based, meaning that the children are free to chose age appropriate play activities that have a learning outcome as well as social and emotional peer practice. The roll of academics here is to teach our kids what they need to succeed in formal school. With literacy being a priority here it's no wonder that reading before kindergarten age is accomplished by 90% of our kids that have been with us for both preschool and pre-k. Our love for books opens up a world of knowledge and wonder, raising questions and curiosity. Our S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering, math) activities include tinkering with tools, gardening, puzzles, blocks, as well as experiencing materials with and without teacher direction. Our Large outdoor play areas allow for daily fresh air and exercise.
​​
~OUR PHILOSOPHY:
Our philosophy is for every child to feel welcome and wanted, a sense of belonging. We do this by providing a safe and age appropriate environment as well as guidance and support.
