A Uniquely Perfect Location

Due to our convenient location just off of Route 9, our school, which borders Brookline and Newton in Chestnut Hill, MA, is a great option for parents driving into Boston for work. We have had families from Waban, Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, Roslindale and many other communities within the Greater Boston Area send their children to our daycare, preschool and pre-k programs. We find the children thrive on the diversity that comes with having families from different areas and cultural backgrounds. If our program sounds like it could be a fit for your child, please give us a call!
