I have sent my son to this wonderful gem of a neighborhood preschool for 3 years. He has to continue to grow and flourish in this environment. He is ahead of the curve in some areas and his thoughtful teacher encourage these areas buy supporting his specific needs with materials and mini-projects designed for him. For example my son is a born builder so one of the teacher went to home depot and got a series of different shaped plumbing pipes and connecters so that he could build a water system in the water table which encouraged all the children to join in. In other areas he needs more support and they also tend to those needs. From a parent, this is not a day care and please do not apply here thinking it is. They do have a flex schedule so theoretically if you work you can send your child here until 5:30 but more than half of the kids get picked up at the normal preschool time ~noon. As it is not a daycare it is more "child center" and less about the parents personal needs. I would highly recommend this preschool to anyone looking for a quality setting with wonderful experienced teachers that really care about your children.

Winthrop offers developmentally appropriate environments for youngsters 18 months up to Kindergarten. The school creates a supportive atmosphere of inclusion, building a sense of community for families. Strong leadership and credentialed teachers offer an unparalleled program in our opinion. The emphasis on individual students within the context of a group setting builds confidence and enhances appropriate skill development. The positive, proactive approach is appreciated. Truly a professionally setting and organization! A gem! Outdoor playground space is limited on site as in many urban settings; however, active activites are incorporated into daily routines and playgrounds nearby are used, giving youngsters contextual experience with sidewalk safety, following directions & listening.

Real Good for parents who work in Back Bay. Teachers are good in general-some more experience than others. However, I wasn't pleased with my daughter's last year in daycare because she was getting bored after being there for 3 yrs. School does really well in fund raising activities. NO PLAYGROUND..you have to walk a block to the pubic one. None denominational teachings but funny when all the children are talking about Halloween* and leaving early for sweets. * "All Saints Eve"-modern English translation.

Overall an adequate school (daycare), some very experienced teachers and some new to industry, perfect for people working in Back Bay, non-demoninational, no playground except for public one shared with other schools.
