HISTORY

Beacon Hill Nursery School Founded

Beacon Hill Nursery School was founded by Frannie Howe and Sue Lyman with the aim to “provide any child living in the Beacon Hill and Back Bay area of Boston with a professionally run Nursery-Kindergarten school, with additional cooperation from all the parents.” The school opened at Shapiro’s Antique Shop at 91 Charles Street.

Beacon Hill Nursery School moves to its current home at 74 Joy Street. The dedication took place on Sunday, October 22 with an estimated three thousand children and adults in attendance to celebrate the opening.
