The primary goal of the People, Incorporated Preschool is to support families in promoting their child’s optimal development. The Preschool is a strength-based childcare program with goals that are family centered, focusing on facilitating social interaction, exploration, and autonomy.
The People, Incorporated Preschool is a unique childcare experience blending children’s interests with developmentally appropriate curriculum and experiences. The Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a stringent model of quality care and educational practices. The curriculum is based on NAEYC and Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care regulations, policies and best practice standards. Children receive timely, comprehensive services, resources, and supports to assist them in maximizing their development while respecting the diversity of families and communities. Children served by the Preschool are ages 2.9 to 6 years. Children of all abilities are welcome.
Parents are always welcomed and encouraged to visit the center. Families may also schedule conferences with the director, the child’s teacher, school nurse, or family advocate to discuss the program, ask questions, or discuss their individual child. We believe that an ongoing parent and professional dialogue is needed to develop, implement, monitor and modify developmental activities.
