Child Care Preschool Needham, MA
A to Z Child Care and Preschool 
The Abbott School
Our school offers a high quality, creative, and educational environment with well-equipped classrooms and a spacious beautiful outdoor activity play area with places for quiet as well as active, staff-supervised play. Children benefit from this stimulating environment that encourages them to explore their potential.
Our Philosophy
We understand the importance of a consistent, nurturing environment, as well as complex and challenging activity for every child’s emotional, cognitive, linguistic and motor development. We believe that all children are unique and should be encouraged to give their minds and hearts voice…abundantly.
Children learn best if they are immersed in complex experiences and given the opportunity to actively process what they learn. True learning is always a consequence of thinking and reflecting. We expect and encourage this process in our teachers, our children, and their families.
Curriculum
Our goal is to provide a high quality environment, which is rich in stimulation, interaction, discussion, and activity, while teaching children to seek additional information. During each day at our school there are structured, unstructured, active, and quiet activities. These may include art, music, and story time, outdoor play, puppetry, block play and dress up.
Our curriculum is based on sophisticated approach of alternating teacher-directed formal instruction with child-directed exploration and play. We help children become familiar with colors, shapes, letters, numbers, and learn skills that will help them build a foundation for their continued schooling.
Our daily activities include music, circle time, dramatic play, gross and small motor movement. Indeed, music is incorporated into the daily routine where children have numerous opportunities to sing, dance, listen to music, and play various instruments.
Skills used in living - friendship, compassion, cooperation, and kindness - are as much part of our curriculum as math and science.
Our programs
Infant
This stage is marked most radically with the infant’s needs to develop as unique individuals with behaviors and growth changes ever present.
Toddler
The toddler stage can be seen as one of the most challenging times and rewarding ones.
Preschool/Pre-K
For this age group, the most important aspect of the program is to promote preschooler’s self-esteem. In every area of his/her development – physical, cognitive, psycho social – the child strives and looks for adult support.

The Abbott School's bright, modern facility includes fenced-in play areas, attractive grounds, exquisite garden, carefully selected toys and learning materials, music room and an extensive library of children’s books.
Our program incorporates the collective wisdom of well-educated caring teachers whose focus is their daily interaction with your child through interesting and meaningful learning experiences, daily routines, and play.
Our staff encompasses a broad knowledge of Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Special Education, Art Education, Music Education, Social Work, Psychology, Nursing, and Child & Family Therapy.
We are interested in attracting that group of parents who care deeply about their role in raising “good people” who will be able to use their skills and talents in an increasingly complex world. We understand the difficulties that parents face in raising thoughtful, caring children. Parents are in the best position to shape family experiences and they know their choices will have definite impact on their children. Our teachers over the past ten years have been committed to helping families in this process.
Our School is a place where caring responsible parents and teachers share common values. We invite you to visit our program whether your child is a tiny newborn, a curious, active toddler, and enthusiastic three or four year old or an eager, questioning five years old.

Excellent 03/13/2009  Veronica    Needham, Massachusetts
Magnificent place for our child to spend the days. I brought my daughter in knowing that she has a speech problem. When Director told me that I just needed to wait a few months and her teachers will dramatically improve the situation, I was surprised. She was right! Now, I have a very talkative and gifted child and I am so grateful to all staff and Director for being so professional, smart, loving, patient and reassuring. Thank you, A to Z!

It is a wonderful place where my son learns, has fun and every morning is eager to go to. Worst day for him is the day when he is not in the Child Care - he misses his friends and teachers. We all love this Child Care, it has become a part of our family. We recommend it to everybody.

A to Z child care has astonishing teachers, marvelous curriculum and is a tremendous experience for children. As a teacher myself, I have deep appreciation for the work these teachers and Director have been doing. Very well thought out monthly themes involve not only children but also us, parents. I need to mention wonderful inclusion of daily music circle times and music lessons in the program - we've never had experience like that before in prior child care centers. Every evening we enjoy listening to the songs our son learned during the day and watching great movements and music games he now familiar with. This preschool is simply amazing.

"Decided to take a minute to share my happiness with A to Z, its teachers and director for the most wonderful holiday concert. All the kids clearly were having fun and especially my son. He was beaming. Each day he gets home from school and tells me how much fun he had, how much he is enjoying his time at school. I can see for myself how all the teachers are caring and work really hard with the kids to make it a nice environment."

It was obvious from the second we walked into the classroom that it was warm and nurturing environment where routines have been established. Our daughter is thriving under your guidance. My husband and I can't express our appreciation enough for the patience, understanding, and kindness of teachers as our daughter develops. We are kept well informed of her behaviors, development, and growth. We are so impressed with the A to Z preschool.

I know my daughter is having a wonderful time at A to Z. She adores her teachers at the school and I always feel she is having a great experience, academically, socially, and spiritually. There are no words to describe my true appreciation for staff that makes these early school days such a positive and exciting experience for my daughter."

My wife and I had the easiest transition going to this daycare and our son really loves it here. We've actually had to tell him on weekends that he can't go because the center is closed, which is heartbreaking! As an added bonus we enjoy how accelerated his learning has become and that he is advanced for his age. The level of communication with the daycare director and teachers is also refreshing. I strongly recommend this center for all caring parents.

We are very impressed by the center and teachers who are always cheerful and thoughtful. We realize and appreciate how sensitive and careful A-Z teachers are about our sonís allergy condition. Teachers seem to be so patient and creative in helping our son acclimate to the school and grow good characters. Cannot tell you how much this means to a working mom!
