    Dynamic Beginnings is based on the public school calendar, but we are also open part time in the summer : Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through the 3rd week of July.

Our Goal

We recognize that most preschool children have had limited contact with others outside of the home. The goal of Dynamic Beginnings is to create a caring environment in which structured and non-structured activities expand children’s social, emotional and cognitive skills.

To achieve this goal, each day we follow set routines (which may be adjusted from time to time). These routines emphasize cooperative activities around creative tasks.

This program is unique in that the program Director — who is both certified teacher and certified nutritionist — integrates foods activities into the early childhood curriculum.
