Precious Beginnings Preschool

Hear from our familes

For the first four months of my youngest son's time at Precious Beginnings I would tear up as I left after drop off. Not because I was missing him terribly (although of course I was), but more so because I felt so sad that I had not known about PB when my older children had gone to nursery school. To this day I believe they were cheated out of something so special, so tender and so unique. This school, the teachers and especially Ms Nancy and Mr Rick truly love what they do and it shows on a minute to minute basis, not only on the smiles on the children's faces but on all of the adults in this community too.

The school is so special because when I drop my children off I do not worry about them. I know they are in a safe, loving environment surrounded by teachers who really understand them and who are want to make learning fun.

We were new to the area and had heard such nice things about Precious Beginnings and their wonderful programs. Our youngest child is currently enrolled and we couldn't say enough about the school’s overall passion for nurturing and educating each child and enhancing the curriculum above and beyond our expectations. The staff is exceptional and my daughter is excited about going to school each day!

From the moment I toured Precious Beginnings I knew it was a special place and I was more than right. The director and staff have gone above and beyond to accommodate my son's individual situation working with me and the specialists in town. We could not be happier that we chose Precious Beginnings for our sons transition into Dover.

"The team at Precious Beginnings recognizes the intellect, creativity and eagerness to learn that is within our kids--even at their young age. They offer a challenging, always changing and fun curriculum--not just the standard curriculum that is repeated every year at other schools. I commend the staff and teachers for sharing their creativity and enthusiasm each and every day with my son. I wish I had a preschool like this myself!"--Jane 

 "When your child attends Precious Beginnings, the entire team there becomes an extension of your family. The attention, support and pure love they give each day is beyond our expectations. We are so grateful for being a part of it. The team there is a treasure!"--Jane


"When we first arrived in Dover in 2005, we sent our eldest son to Precious Beginnings and our middle son to another pre-school. We were so impressed with our experience with the Precious Beginnings Pre-K program that we switched our middle son to Precious Beginnings the following year.The number one thing that we value at Precious Beginnings is the strong sense of community and the way that these young, impressionable children are nurtured, embraced and instilled with values. The result is a class of kids who "graduate" to go on to kindergarten with a tremendous sense of self-worth and self-confidence."

"During my first Kindergarten parent-teacher conference, my daughter's teacher remarked how well prepared Kate was. When I mentioned there were two other children from Precious Beginnings in her class she marveled at how similar all three children were in their readiness for Medfield kindergarten. I always thought there was no better place for my daughter to grow and develop than Precious Beginnings; now I know I was right."

"We knew that Precious Beginnings was the right place for us the minute we walked into the classrooms. Having looked at many preschools beforehand, we were immediately taken with the calm, peaceful, engaging and loving atmosphere. We were impressed by the holistic way in which the teachers interacted with each child, addressing each teachable moment with thoughtful and respectful questions and responses. We loved how the classrooms were filled with cheerful, interesting and highly educational and developmentally appropriate materials. And most of all, we loved how our daughter, who had never been away from her family, wanted to stay and play longer. Our immediate impressions of Precious Beginnings have been surpassed with each day, month and year that we have been part of the program."

"When we first found the school, as current/former teachers, it was key to find a place that had both a high bar for education, and a genuine love for the children: we found that and more at Precious Beginnings. To have a school that could balance academic credentials of its faculty with a warm and nurturing environment for the children was a dream come true. To have the children learn about faith as well was an added blessing! All of our children have attended and loved it, and have done very well in school afterwards – our youngest finishes up there this year, and is already sad to be leaving…we could not recommend it more enthusiastically for anyone who wants their children to learn, and to be loved, at the same time.
