Our Mission

A Focus on Development of the Whole Child

At Magic Years our mission is to create an environment in which a child can grow in self-confidence, gain friendships and social skills, solve problems, and foster an excitement for learning.

Our school day begins at 8:30 am and ends at 12pm. Classrooms are broken up by age: the younger children (beginning at age 3) are in the Dolphin Room and the older children are in the Starfish Room (pre-k). A few spots are open in The Dolphin Class for Tadpoles (beginning age 2.9).

AFTERNOON ADVENTURE
Our Afternoon Adventure program extends the school day to 2:30pm to give children more time with their teachers and friends to learn, play, explore, and engage with each other in smaller group settings.

THE SCHOOL YEAR
Our Preschool opens in early September and closes in early June. Our vacations closely follow the Manchester Public School calendar.

Our Program

Outdoor play every day
