Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"As an educational facility, our philosophy is to enrich and enhance each child's natural developmental progression while ensuring that all children experience the sheer delight of being a child. At Herring Brook your child's day will be full of wonder, adventure, discovery, laughter, joy and friendship! We provide children with a wealth and variety of both materials and experiences. Education occurs "naturally" through playful interaction with the materials, people and the world around them. We do more than merely "teach" academic facts. We encourage curiosity and help children learn through exploration, experimentation and discovery.
Since play and learning are inseparable; we integrate play into everything that children do at Herring Brook. We provide a full range of indoor and outdoor play, and a well-rounded, dynamic, and meaningful developmental curriculum. Our equipment and learning materials have been carefully chosen to promote education as well as entertainment. Our facility has been specially designed to provide a safe and stimulating, living and learning environment for the care and education of young children.
To meet the needs of today's working parents we have created a charming "home away from home" that embraces children into a loving community and celebrates with them daily the joy and wonder of childhood. At Herring Brook we highlight positive social values. We help children create positive connections to others, build strong, meaningful relationships and experience a genuine sense of family and belonging in a warm, nurturing, yet educationally stimulating environment. Herring Brook families enjoy the security and peace of mind knowing, without a shadow of a doubt, that their most cherished little ones are in the best possible hands of a truly professional and very loving, knowledgeable, exceptional staff.
