Where should I send my child to school? Which school will be the right fit for my child, for my family? Choosing a school can be a tremendously daunting process for a family. Researching what is available and tracking down all the various options can become a full time job. And we don’t know a single mama out there who has extra time on their hands. So we’ve put together this School Guide; a comprehensive list of local Private and Preschools to help you choose. Check out our guide, save it for future reference, and use some of the time we’ve saved you to kick back and relax for a few minutes.

East Side Nursery School
At East Side Nursery School young children learn by doing. We believe that learning is an interactive process that requires active thinking and experimenting. As educators, we set the stage for children to learn through child-initiated, child-directed, and teacher-supported activities. These activities encourage each child to explore, experiment, and grow at his or her own rate of development.
School One is a small, progressive high school on the East Side of Providence. Our hallmarks: a robust arts program; a creative curriculum; an inclusive and vibrant community; and a great track record with college and art school admissions.
At Learning Brooke, we hope to build a relationship with you and your child in order to support his/her early development. Our blended philosophy is constructed upon the belief that all children are competent people and it is our job as their teachers to bring out all of the discovery, joy, and ideas that they possess through explorations, projects, problem-solving, and empowering their independence. We invite all children 6 weeks through 5 years of age to join our school.
Sea Side Nursery School
Sea Side Nursery School is a small center with an arts/music/nature-based program helping each child individually to reach their greatest potential. Established in 1983 we have served the East Bay for 35 years. Our enchanted gardens, large natural outdoor play areas, and inviting classrooms are engaging in imaginative play for our students. We hope you’ll visit soon.
