Welcome to The Family School!

Established as a year round program in 1980, our mission remains unchanged: “We support those who seek to raise stable and loving children in a chaotic world.”  The Family School and Salt Box Schools are comprised of an exceptional community of dedicated families, young children, teachers, and education administrators. Together, we provide excellent, nationally recognized, early childhood education for infant (six weeks and older), toddler, pre-school, and kindergarten age children in a beautiful school setting in Brewster all of which are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC.)

We specialize in partnering with families to create meaningful and rich learning experiences through personalized education plans and customized schedules which support families in raising their young children. With care and thoughtfulness, highly skilled teachers design age appropriate curriculum, support creative play, coach effective social/emotional/peer interactions, and entice strong physical skill building. Children and their families at our school, learn and grow together inside our classrooms.

We’ve worked hard to share the magic of our community on this website – yet, you really do have to come visit to truly understand what makes us special. When you visit us, you’ll see that…
