December 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Now is the time to think about registrations for preschool for the 2024-2025 academic year!
Parents looking for preschool or transitional kindergarten options for the academic year beginning September 2024 are invited to tour our classrooms at 3 Blue Hill River Road, Canton on Saturday morning, December 16th 2023, 9-10:30am. Please come to the community concert with Mamasteph at 11am, after classroom tours and conversation.
We ask that interested families call or email the school to set a time for individual tours. Weather-permitting, the playground will be open for those waiting.
The Director, Katrina Selawsky, will be on hand to describe the program and answer any questions you may have about the school, its mission, and the enrollment process.
Learning Circle Preschool offers morning programs with two, three, or five-day options, afternoon enrichment programs, an option for early arrival (7:30 a.m.) and extended day options that run until 4:30 pm. Set at the foot of the Great Blue Hill, the facility houses three spacious classrooms and features a highly individualized, creative, and engaging curriculum that follows guidelines developed by the state of Massachusetts and the National Association of Educators of Young Children.
Learning Circle uses a project approach in curriculum development that is inspired by schools that developed in Reggio Emilia, Italy. This exemplary model of early childhood education has at its core a deep belief in the competence and creativity of young children. What makes these programs so special includes:
- An emergent curriculum model developed from observations of the children’s play
- A focus on projects and collaborative learning
- An integrated approach to learning using the graphic arts as tools for both cognitive and social development
- Carefully organized and aesthetically pleasing classrooms and common spaces
- An understanding that the school environment can teach, and sets a tone for a comfortable and engaging place for learning.
The children’s work is extensively documented using photographs, the children’s own drawings, dictations from the children, and videos of classroom projects in action. This documentation helps teachers develop curriculum meaningful to the children, and helps children remember and share their experiences together. Documentation also gives family members a concrete picture of each child’s day at school.
Again, please email the Director, Katrina Selawsky at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 781-828-4800 or use the form on the website Contact page for more information or to arrange a tour of the facility if the January 21st or 24th dates are inconvenient. This year, tours may be arranged for late afternoons (when most children have gone) or Saturday mornings.
