About Hathaway School
Meet our staff here
Our preschool and kindergarten programs
are nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The programs are designed for each child to develop all the necessary skills and understandings to succeed and thrive academically. We also provide before and after school programs as well as a summer program for K-6 school age children. Transportation packages are also available. The Department of Early Education and Care (ECC) is the state agency that oversees all licensed child care in Massachusetts and has reviewed, inspected and licensed the Hathaway school for twenty preschool and sixty after school age children.
is standards based. This means, in part, that we utilize the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Curriculum Frameworks as a benchmark in developing our curriculum as well as the Early Education and Care benchmarks for development. Our curriculum always meets but generally exceeds these standards upon completion of a program. Our students are strongly prepared to confidently meet the challenges when place in any school environment. We believe in setting high standards for all our students.
All children love to learn.
It is our goal to find the way to individually address their needs so that going to school is a fun and rewarding experience. High standards are not just for the academic arena. We also encourage and provide students the opportunities to develop a sense of pride in themselves, in their school and within their family and community environments. We believe that this provides the individual child the best possible opportunity to meet with success in our increasingly more globalized world.
