ECDC Nursery School

11 Washington Street, Sherborn, MA

Costimate: $282/wk

ECDC is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation. It is a nonsectarian organization open to all eligible children and families regardless of race, religion, cultural heritage, national origin, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation or disabilities. Toilet Training status is not an eligibility requirement. Its goals are to offer the highest quality early childhood education for children ages two years and nine months through five years and to offer parents information and support on early child development and education.

Philosophy
ECDC has always believed that each child should be treated as an individual and has the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace with our low teacher/child ratios. The classroom environment promotes our philosophy that children learn through play with many independent choices available through the day. We have many self-directed activities as well as large and small group activities. We believe that the process of learning is more important than the product. Children are encouraged and supported by our trained staff as they play and learn. Having our graduates well prepared for kindergarten is an important goal at ECDC.

Goals and Objectives
Our classes are child-centered with activities designed to meet each child's developmental needs. The goal of ECDC is to foster social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth in a nurturing and secure environment. Our program has three different cornerstones:

* Learn Through Play: We believe that all preschool children learn best through play. Each child is treated as an individual and has the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace. Our classroom environment reflects this philosophy with many independent choices available through the day. At ECDC, the process of learning is more important than the product.

* Parent Involvement: The most effective education results from a partnership between parents and teachers. For this reason, ECDC was established in 1977 in Sherborn as a parent cooperative. Parents spend time in the classroom interacting with their child and the teachers. The minimum time requirement is quite modest, between 4 and 7 times per year in the classroom as your child's "guest." There are additional opportunities for parents who are interested, and additional involvement is welcomed.

* Qualified and Committed Staff: Qualified, committed, caring and enthusiastic teachers are the cornerstone of an effective early education program.

Goddard School Walpole

2265 Boston Providence Highway Route One South, Walpole, MA

Costimate: $270/wk

The Goddard School Walpole is the premier private preschool of choice, offering extended hours to accommodate busy parents of children ages six weeks to six years old. We are a fun place to both work and go to school. We offer a clean, safe environment with owners on site and certified teachers who deliver leading edge educational programs based on the developmental learning stages of Piaget.

At the core of our philosophy is the knowledge that children are our most precious resource. Our commitment is to provide these young people with nothing less than the finest possible environment for the safe and healthy development of their self-esteem, confidence and the love of learning.

We are active and respected members of our community and offer a progressive place to work with opportunity for employee growth and development. We provide simply the best education value available today!

The early childhood years are a very special time in your child's development. Great changes occur in this relatively short period of time as children learn to communicate, increase their intellectual awareness, and make great physical strides. In recognition of the crucial importance of these years, the Goddard School Walpole has created a program tailored to meet the needs of your child at each stage of development.

The philosophy of the Goddard School Walpole is to provide an atmosphere suited to the development of self-esteem, confidence, and the love of learning. By combining the best possible equipment and professionally educated staff in an environment specifically designed for young children, we provide an outstanding program.

The educational goal of the Goddard School Walpole is to use fun and creativity to foster a love of learning. We challenge our students by promoting inquiry and discovery through exploring the world around them. This instills a sense of confidence in their ability to master new situations and tasks through reasoning. Your child will be exposed to a variety of teaching methods so that he/she will be ready to enter any elementary school.

You, the parent, are very important to the Goddard staff. Additionally, our goal is to support and nurture you, as the parent, in your child rearing efforts. Because you know your child best, we encourage you to contact the school about any questions or concerns you might have.
