It is our intention to create happy, confident, self-aware, mindful and compassionate children with a true sense of purpose and a life-long passion for learning and healthy-living. We aim to accomplish this by providing a whole-life, multi-sensory, learning experience in a safe, fun, loving and nurturing home-environment.
Our Holistic Curriculum
Our holistic preschool curriculum is based on a unique style of learning that engages the child’s intellectual, social, physical, creative and spiritual capacities. It was carefully developed to make sure that it serves our goals to meet the developmental needs and interests of your child. The children enrolled at Holistic Beginnings Preschool get to experience the perfect balance between guided instruction and the freedom to express who they are as individuals. Our children love learning just as much as they love playing; they are unable to distinguish the difference. They move on with a life-long passion for learning and are prepared to meet life with enthusiasm, confidence and their wonderment about the world left intact.
Our Spiritual Perspective
The children of Holistic Beginnings Preschool come from a variety of cultural, religious and spiritual backgrounds. Even though we are a non-religious, free-thought preschool, early-childhood spirituality is the foundation of our preschool and we recognize and acknowledge the spiritual dimension of each child, person and living thing. We encourage each child to experience life through their heart-center; we emphasize compassion and we encourage the development of reverence and respect for all forms of life throughout our curriculum.
Our Organic Menu
We provide a delicious, wholesome, homemade menu that is plant-based and consists of mostly organic and natural foods. Our menu was strategically created with just the right nutritional balance in accordance with dietary guidelines and recommendations for young developing children.
Our play-space is located in a one-family home and was designed to create a unique field of energy that has a positive impact on the children and anyone that walks through our front door. It is filled with lots of natural light, warm colors and mostly natural toys and materials. We also have a great fenced-in, outdoor space for the children to get out daily to further play, explore and discover. We have several garden beds in our yard of which the children use to garden and they are usually blossoming with beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables each Spring/Summer. We consciously practice the use of environmentally-friendly products and cleaning supplies that are non-toxic and biodegradable. Our warm, loving, family-style atmosphere allows your child to feel a sense of security throughout their experience here at Holistic Beginnings.
Our Small Class Size
Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) allow preschool centers to have 1 staff member for every 10 children. The Holistic Beginnings Preschool ratio is 2 staff member for every 8 children. This small class size gives us the ability to focus in on your child’s individual needs, accommodate your child’s unique learning styles and respect his/her learning pace. Your child will never feel lost in the bunch.
At Holistic Beginnings Preschool, we celebrate the cultural differences of our children and their families. We acknowledge diversity and encourage multicultural learning throughout our curriculum leaving the children to have a great respect, understanding and appreciation of the unique differences of themselves and others.
