Welcome to the Learning Circle Preschool!
Learning Circle Preschool is currently accepting Preschool & Kindergarten applications for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Learning Circle Preschool, accredited by NAEYC, is located at the foot of the Great Blue Hill on the Milton/Canton border and serves preschool and kindergarten children and their families from Milton, Canton, and the surrounding communities. The school offers morning programs with two, three, or five day options, and extended day options Monday – Thursday. Founded on respectful and nurturing interactions between teachers, children, and families, the program strives to build on each child’s curiosity and creativity through a project oriented, emergent curriculum model inspired by the schools of Reggio Emilia.
At Learning Circle Preschool we believe young children learn best through playful interactions with their environment, engaging in activities that are deeply meaningful to them. The Learning Circle Preschool curriculum provides children with the extended periods of time they need to play, to plan, to reflect on past experiences, to practice, and to connect new experiences and knowledge to that which is familiar and known. The children enjoy engaging, hands on experiences that build a strong foundation for learning with individual attention and project work in small groups, respectful and nurturing interactions, an integrated arts and science curriculum, all in carefully organized and aesthetically pleasing classrooms and common spaces. The children's work is extensively documented using photographs, the children's own drawings, dictations from the children, and videos of classroom projects in action. This documentation helps teachers develop curriculum meaningful to the children, and helps children remember and share their experiences together. Documentation also gives family members a concrete picture of each child’s day at school.
Parents enjoy on-going communication, detailed documentation of each child’s growth and development shared in a portfolio system, regularly distributed newsletters and other written information about the program, parent meetings and discussion groups on educational and parenting issues, and a welcoming attitude towards parent participation in the program.
At Learning Circle Preschool, we believe that each child follows a unique timetable as his/her development unfolds. Because of this, our curriculum goals are highly individualized. We strive to offer each child the support, stimulation, and appropriate challenges necessary for a strong foundation for confident, life long learning.
