Early Childhood: Lifelong learning begins with play

On our early childhood campus, we celebrate the natural wonder and curiosity of young children. Our teachers plant the seeds for a lifetime of learning and well-being through programs centered on imaginative play, experience in nature, homelike rhythms and nurturing relationships.

Set on an idyllic, hillside on the outskirts of Keene, our early childhood campus is a place that fosters healthy growth. Surrounded by 12 acres of meadows, play yards, gardens, forests and streams, it is a perfect setting for wholesome play and boundless adventure.

Now Enrolling for the 2019-2020 school year!

The experiences our family have had here have been absolutely magical.
