Our Philosophy

We believe that learning takes place with a continuous process of interaction between a child and his/her environment through exploring and experimenting.

Each new experience contributes to a child’s understanding of the world. We are committed to providing a safe, supportive and stimulating environment where a child can develop trusting relationships and enhance their emotional well-being.

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum involves the child in daily activities that stimulate the following areas: social, cognitive, emotional, physical, language and literacy and self-help skills.

We believe that play is truly a child’s work. Children are encouraged to: 

  • Experience new ideas
  • Develop realistic ideas about themselves and others
  • Use language in many different ways to express thoughts, feelings, and needs
  • Appreciate a wide variety of art, literature and music
  • Develop the ability to fully comprehend and use mathematical relationships

Curriculum implemented is researched based and aligned with Massachusetts State standards and guidelines. 

Intake/Enrollment Procedure

If you are interested in enrolling your child, contact the EEC Enrollment Coordinator for next steps. 

Once enrolled we will invite you to a virtual Zoom tour where the parent(s) and the child will be able to visit the program and meet the staff. 

Parents will be given an intake packet. It must be completed and all medical forms filled out by the child’s pediatrician before beginning the program. Please ask to note any activity restrictions, allergies or current medications. You will also be asked to submit a photo of your child to keep in file.

Fees are assessed on a weekly basis and families enrolling more than one child will receive a 5% discount for each additional child.
