Beacon Hill Nursery School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or marital status.

Since its inception, the Beacon Hill Nursery School has been committed to providing an environment which supports and nurtures children’s curiosity, protects and respects their trust in the adults around them, and understands and utilizes the learning opportunities that abound in a child’s daily delight in life. Furthermore, BHNS has long recognized what family involvement is an essential element of a child’s preschool experience, and that parental confidence in teachers and curriculum is key to successful learning in the young child. As early childhood educators, we recognize that a positive, social-emotional atmosphere created by a healthy, supportive community increases the ease with which all learning takes place. Partnerships between staff and families benefit our children in ways no other single factor may.

This is the philosophy which drives the admission decisions at Beacon Hill Nursery School. Our families come from a variety of metropolitan Boston and Cambridge neighborhoods, but all come because they believe in our mission and are able to wholeheartedly support their children’s experiences. Building and maintaining a strong, healthy, and diverse community is of the utmost importance. We welcome back legacy families and all siblings and each year we celebrate the inclusion of new families.
