     NEW PRESCHOOL AT MINUTEMAN  -  Colonial Children’s Academy

    Colonial Children’s Academy’s curriculum will feature STEM activities, outdoor and indoor recreation, music, literacy and cooperative play all within the children’s daily schedule. The emergent curriculum will be developed from the children’s imagination, interests and skill levels.  

    Minuteman’s High School setting allows the preschool students to explore many of the school’s career and technical education programs and use facilities such as a large indoor gym. Student-to-teacher ratios far exceed the state standards allowing adults to provide additional guidance and support throughout the day.

    Colonial Children’s Academy will follow Minuteman High School’s school year calendar. It will be open five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am-4:00 pm.  It will serve children between 2.9 years of age and 5 years of age. 

    The program offers discounted prices for in-district families and staff members of the Lexington Public Schools and Minuteman High School. 

    The Children’s Academy at Minuteman High School is staffed by certified preschool teachers and enriched by high school interns enrolled in Minuteman’s Early Education and Teaching program, this laboratory

    Enrollment space is limited.  For more information on enrollment and tuition, please contact Michelle Roche, Director of Career and Technical Education at Minuteman High School, by phone at 781-861-6500, ext. 7326 or by e-mail at Mroche@minuteman.org.
