General School Mission

The Chestnut Hill School’s early childhood program honors children as individuals, encouraging them to learn at their own pace. As a result, children develop a strong sense of self at the developmentally appropriate time. One-on-one interactions with teachers provide opportunities for support and instruction in good work habits. Spontaneous play is another important part of the curriculum.
