Our Mission

To help our children grow in their love of learning while supporting them to reach their fullest potential through a tailored educational experience based on the individual strengths, needs, and interests of each child.


Although it may seem like grade school is years down the road, the foundation for your child’s future is established in their earliest years. The Melrose School is an elite boutique preschool in Newton, Massachusetts that nurtures children from infancy to 5 years old. We offer a uniquely individualized experience in a highly responsive, purely educational, mixed-age setting.

The Melrose School supports learning in a language rich environment. Starting from infancy, each child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and linguistic development is supported with a tailored experience based on his or her own strengths, needs, and interests. By keeping our ratios low and pairing your child with the same teachers for several years, The Melrose School is able to meet each child at the intersection of their interests and developmental needs. Every moment is an opportunity for your child to learn, and we do not take that lightly.

Our mixed-age curriculum ensures that your child is being challenged in a developmentally appropriate manner, which fully supports the child irrespective of their age. If your child is gifted in some areas, he/she will be able to work on those skills without having to wait to grow old enough to move up to the next classroom.
