King Street is a well-established early education and care center located near Springfield College. Our staff is diverse with many bi-lingual and bi-cultural teachers. A beautiful playground was installed in 2012 -- it is a large, fabulous play space with an outdoor water spray, bicycle track and a large gardening area. At this time, we are level 2 participants in the Department of Early Education and Care's Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) and accredited by the National Association of Young Children (NAEYC).
We have a cooperative Program with Putnam Vocational Academy. Juniors and seniors enrolled in Putnam’s early childhood tract alternate weeks between Square One and their academic program @ Putnam providing all Square One children with additional attention and care.
Our curriculum is based on national outcome expectations and all our children are regularly assessed to ensure they are reaching their full educational, emotional and social potential. Literacy is a big component of our work with story books and literature incorporated into our daily learning schedules. Field trips are taken regularly to local museums, farms and other exciting attractions.
We would look forward to hosting you for a tour and look forward to supporting your child's educational success.
