I can't give enough praise to Playschool. I feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful community of people. My son has learned so many valuable lessons and social skills while at Playschool. Lessons and skills that I am certain he would not have learned elsewhere. This is a school where not only the children are learning- the parents are too.

We had a wonderful experience at Charlestown Playhouse. The level of parent involvement provides a sense of community that isn't found at other schools.

Charlestown Playhouse is by far the best preschool and kindergarten in the area. Their play-based learning environment is fantastic - it's diverse, thorough and provides each child with a learning environment specific to their needs. I am very grateful for the experience my 3 children have had at this school.

I have had kids at Charlestown Playhouse for the past six years. It is an excellent school filled with dedicated and caring college-educated teachers. My children have benefited from the age-appropriate curriculum and I have benefited from the community environment. Also, my husband and I have learned may valuable lessons about parenting. The school sponsors talks by experts in early childhood education and because I help in the classroom once a week I get to see the teachers in action in a variety of situations. I paid for my children to go to Playschool, but I got an invaluable education there for free.

Playschool, as it is lovingly referred to, is a unique cooperative program where parents pour their energies into a well worth it organization! Children are educated in a play-based, developmentally appropriate environment where student-ratios and teacher qualifications are unmatched anywhere! We have had nothing but wonderful things to say after having 3 children attend Playschool.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
