What is the Philosophy?

The Eastside Day School is a progressive program that emphasizes social and emotional development through play-based activities. Our emergent curriculum supports a cooperative and inquiry-based approach to learning.

The Eastside Day School is the perfect option for families with children ages 12 months to 3 years who need extended child care and value a high quality educational and social environment.

What is the school calendar?
We are a year-round program. We are closed for all federal holidays as well as one week in December and the last two weeks of August.

What experience do your teachers have?
Our head teachers all hold master’s degrees and our assistant teachers hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, as well as experience with early childhood education or a related field. Our teachers nurture children and families as they progress through the program.
