Full day preschool and pre-k, year round care for ages 3 - kindergarten

​***Enrolling for fall 2017***

60 Orleans Street Lowell MA. 01850.​​ 

​Our program is a small private preschool. We are fully licensed, our staff ​is certified by the  state of ​MA. We have been in business at this location since ​1993. Our school is in a home not a building, the school is the entire first floor and is 100% dedicated to the preschool only. We have 3 class rooms, a kitchen, 1/2 bathroom for the kids and a coat room at the entrance. Miss Yvonne (that's me) is the director of our program and the teacher of one ​​of the best curriculums around. We make delicious ​home cooked meals and snacks fresh each day. There are ​many benefits of belonging ​to a small private ​preschool ​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 PHILOSOPHY:

​Our philosophy is simple, it 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

Delicious meals and snacks are provided to all children at no additional charge.​ USDA approved through Yours For Children Inc.
​We do one thing here and we do it well, that is to teach our ​preschoolers as much as we can and have as much fun as possible ​doing it. ​​
​​​I credit the success of our program with a combination of things: ​Low student to teacher ratio 2-10, The fact that all of our kids are ​preschoolers and a curriculum that has proven itself with each child we ​work with. 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 simple sentences and sight words before kindergarten age is accomplished by 90% of our kids that have been with us for both preschool and pre-k. 4 year olds reading is pretty impressive, ​you've got to see it for yourself. 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 ABC mouse on the kids tablets, tinkering ​with real tools, gardening, puzzles, blocks, as well as experiencing complex materials with and without teacher direction. Our Large outdoor ​play areas allow for daily fresh air and exercise. We love music, each day we listen to kid songs during morning free play and classical ​music during rest time. On rainy days when we cant go outside we blast the dancing music on the radio and let loose.

Every month we have special events​ planned, weather we have someone come in (in school field trip) or we host an extra curricular activity. Our news letter is posted each month so that no one misses anything.

​Set up a visit in the Spring to register for Fall preschool. We also enroll throughout the year as space ​sometimes becomes available. Early registration gives your child ​the ​​best chance of being accepted and getting your choice of days.

​Bring your child, come for a play date. We ask that you call ahead to see if we have the opening that you need and ​to make sure it
​isn't rest time,

​Enrollment forms, first week tuition and an annual $40 registration fee must be returned to the school before your child's spot is secure.

​We charge an annual $40. registration fee​ that is used toward curriculum costs and special events throughout the year as we do not run fundraisers here.
