words from our families
“The Community School blew us away! What a lovely, kind, playful, nurturing gem of a preschool – I always thought places like this had to be wildly expensive but TCS is affordable and accessible. Our daughter grew so much just in the 3-month abbreviated program (Covid). I love how much time they spend outdoors and how they take the children on field trips to local businesses and the library, post office, etc. We feel so lucky to have this amazing resource right in Maynard.”
We are so fortunate to be located in the heart of downtown Maynard. We consider the town to be one of our classrooms and we plan weekly “Community Connections” to interact with the nature, local businesses, community helpers, and cultural district that surround our school.
We are now enrolling for the 2023/2024 school year! We are open 5 Days a Week from 9am to 12pm with an Extended Day Lunch Bunch Option from 12pm to 1pm.
