631 VFW Parkway, Chestnut Hill, MA

Starting at $3101/mo

SolBe is an early learning center that re-imagines traditional notions of child care and nursery school. Our name defines our purpose: "sol" from the Spanish word meaning sun and the English word "be", combining into a name meaning "to be full of light". Learning is not the filling of a cup, but the lighting of a fire.

We aim to create the highest quality early learning experiences through a seed-to-table nutrition program, thoughtfully designed facilities, especially-trained-for-this-work educators, and a school culture influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach integrated with Spanish immersion.

Your wellness and the wellness of your child shouldn't be a question of either/or. SolBe is an early learning center committed to yes/and. Our dynamic program continually adapts and improves as we nurture healthy, engaged lives for children and adults.

The SolBe educational philosophy is heavily influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach; we believe children to be competent and capable citizens of our society. As such, we are careful to craft experiences and learning opportunities based on what we observe about children. We constantly look for opportunities to scaffold children s learning, which encourages them to be active participants in their learning experiences. This means allowing children the freedom to play and explore on their own accord, and the educator taking a role as a guide instead of the traditional gatekeeper of knowledge.

Our educational philosophy also encompasses best practices related to language immersion education. We are a Spanish language immersion program, which means that our day-to-day activities happen in Spanish. We value bilingual learning- and the cognitive and social-emotional benefits which bilingualism promotes.

Attention has been paid to the interactions between the physical learning environment and children, as well as how the environment impacts the interactions between educators and children. Our spaces have been intentionally designed to shift to the changing needs and emotions of the humans who use them. We re inspired by the Montessori method and its attention to beautiful home-like environments, which is reflected in our design.

Our seed-to-table nutrition program is another element of our educational philosophy. Research shows that when children are active participants in the growing and preparation of their food, they are more likely to try, and enjoy new foods. Children participate in a food preparation task daily.
Reviewed by Alex D 5/5 stars
We were one of the "founding families" joining SolBe in early 2019 when our daughter was just four months old. Oh boy do we feel like we hit the jackpot. Over the past two and a half years we feel like SolBe has been our partner in encouraging our child's development both on an educational and emotional level. During COVID they have been transparent and open with the families and have engaged the community for the best practices for all stake holders. The facilities are gorgeous, the educators caring, warm and engaged, and the kiddos happy and healthy. We loved SolBe so much that when we moved 20 miles away, we kept our daughter in the program for three extra months while we searched for a school near our new home that was like SolBe.
