Early Childhood Development
Shrewsbury, MA’s Premiere Early Childhood Center
Each classroom has 3 opportunities daily to spend active time in our fenced-in play areas. Our playground is surrounded by a natural landscape, giving our outdoor area a much larger feel. Both physical activity and exposure to nature are important to children’s social and gross motor development.
Field Trips & In-House Programs
We bring local community helpers into our classrooms throughout the school year. The Shrewsbury Police and Fire Departments, postal workers, and local dentists are some of the visits we schedule. We also encourage parents to visit with students to share their job.
Holiday Parties & Multicultural Celebrations
Classrooms do hold parties to celebrate various holidays during the year. Special snacks, decorations, and crafts are themed for each party. We also teach students about various cultural celebrations held around the world. Specifically, classrooms are given a country to research and display their special holidays on their classroom door during December. We feel this practice expands children’s understanding of the world around them and develops their respect for others.
We encourage parents, grandparents, and community members to schedule a time to visit and read a story with the children. This is a wonderful way to bridge learning at home and school.
