My child attended Boutwell Early Childhood Center for 2 years and it's play group before that. Boutwell is a warm and wonderful first learning experience. The classrooms are spacious and the dedicated staff (many have been there 10 plues years) is so nurturing. Unlike private or day care preschools teachers here have advanced degrees and are certified by the state. You can be sure that your child is getting the best education possible. Boutwell is an integrated school with occupational, physical and speech therapists on staff so your child will have access to those wonderful resources if they need them.
My two sons have attended Boutwell (K, preschool, Pre-K) and we have been nothing but impressed. My younger son is on an IEP and the staff and therapists have been excellent with him, both serving his indiviual needs and in including him in the regular classroom and activities. Boutwell is a small, intimate school and has been a perfect introduction to school for my sons. Very, very pleased. Cute building, nice newer playground, very attentive staff, lots of parent involvement.
