Beginnings School and Child Development Center takes a distinctive and evidence-based approach to early childhood education and learning for children 3 months – 5 years old in a nurturing and supportive environment. Beginnings is far more than a daycare for young children from Weston, Wellesley, Newton, Waltham, Wayland, and many other Greater Boston communities. Beginnings is a school and child development center for infants, toddlers, pre-K and transitional kindergarten students.

At Beginnings, we understand that when a child has positive feelings of self-worth and is able to recognize, express, and cope with their own emotions and those of others, they are better able to explore new areas of learning and engage more fully with the world around them. The philosophy is designed to help develop a strong sense of self by fostering the skills of emotional intelligence, which are critical for promoting academic, social, and personal success.

Beginnings School is proud to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), an organization that is devoted to promoting high-quality early learning for all young children. And, we are proud to provide an exceptional preschool education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.

Children at Beginnings School enjoy the benefits of approximately two acres of wonderful outdoor spaces to express their enthusiasm and release their energy. Our facilities are designed to stimulate children’s curiosity and cultivate a healthy appetite for learning and discovery. There is a treehouse and a stage, and the outdoor space was landscaped with children in mind.

Children’s Garden

  • Gardening allows children to experience responsibility and patience, learn about life cycles, and begin to understand the interdependence of living things.
  • Teachers are able to schedule time in the garden throughout spring and summer, and children can document seasonal changes and make observations through sketches, photographs, and words.
  • Each spring the garden fills with plants and flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds for observation.
  • Children can also take the lead in garden activities like planting seeds and then nurturing them to grow into strong plants with vegetables and herbs they can later enjoy together.

Playground

  • A multi-purpose play structure offers a variety of choices to match skill development and interests.
  • Children can enjoy tricycle riding, ball playing, and hula-hoop rolling.
  • A sand-filled area is perfect for filling and emptying pails and creating sandcastles – enhancing the child’s time for imaginative and creative play.
  • Our infants and toddlers enjoy a separate grassy play area and enclosed sandbox, separate from older children.

 

Accreditations

NAEYC Accreditation

Every child deserves access to high-quality early learning experiences. NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs.

We’ve had an absolutely wonderful experience at Beginnings! My two children attend the school, and I’ve seen them grow dramatically in terms of both academic learning and emotional intelligence. The teachers and administrators are extremely knowledgeable about early childhood development, and they really care about helping the kids succeed. The school itself has a really warm and inviting vibe, and the grounds include a field to run in, a playground, and even a treehouse!

Joining the Beginnings School family was the best decision we made this year. Every single teacher and administrator welcomed us with open arms and made us feel so comfortable, even during the pandemic when everything was up in the air. Our son's teachers are kind, intelligent women who are clearly very passionate about what they do, and always take the time to talk to me about his growth and development. We look forward to watching our son flourish at Beginnings over the next few years.

Both my children are enrolled at Beginnings and we would recommend it. The environment is always calm and content. The teachers are of high quality and trained extensively in emotional intelligence, which we greatly appreciate. Administration is accommodating with schedules and make time to speak to parents. We especially are impressed with the communication, specifically the daily emails & photos and parent-teacher conferences.
