Learning Circle Preschool, serving children aged 2.9 – 6, is accredited by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). The school offers two, three, or five day morning preschool programs, afternoon enrichment programs, and extended day hours to 4:30 p.m. Set at the foot of the Great Blue Hill, the facility houses three spacious classrooms and a state of the art playground in a natural setting. The school features a highly individualized, creative, and engaging curriculum that follows best practice guidelines developed by Massachusetts as well as those developed by the National Association of Educators of Young Children.

The curriculum at Learning Circle Preschool is highly individualized, taking into account the unique learning styles and needs of the children across all areas of their early development. In addition to accommodating younger preschool children, the school has developed programming for older preschoolers who may have experience in structured settings away from home. Whether or not children are age-eligible for a public school kindergarten, some may benefit developmentally from a transitional program.

Learning Circle uses a project approach in curriculum development that is inspired by schools that developed in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Children enjoy engaging, hands on experiences that build a strong foundation for learning with individual attention and project work in small groups, respectful and nurturing interactions, opportunities to plan, reflect on, and work on projects over time, and an integrated language arts, creative arts and science curriculum.

Parents enjoy on-going communication, detailed documentation of each child’s growth and development shared in a portfolio system, newsletters and other written information about the program distributed regularly, parent meetings and discussion groups on educational and parenting issues, and a welcoming attitude towards parent participation in the program.

Class sizes range from 10-14 students, each with two highly qualified and experienced co-teachers. Registrations for prospective families begins in September a year in advance of enrollment. Decisions about placements for September, 2023 begin being made in December, 2022, and will continue on a first-come first-serve basis for any remaining spaces.
