Not quite ready for kindergarten?

Begin your child’s journey to school and lifelong learning at Bowen. Enrollment in Bowen’s Pre-K Program is now open for Fall 2017.  Bowen’s Pre-K program offers a unique opportunity for a third year of pre-school. Pre-K combines an exciting mix of academics and social skills, taught by a dedicated team of educators. Older 4’s and young 5’s work toward goals comparable to those in kindergarten, but at a modified pace in a much smaller community with a 7:1 child teacher ratio. This class of 14 quickly becomes a cohesive group working and playing together with enthusiasm. The program runs Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-1:00 pm.

Parents are welcome to visit the school to observe firsthand how their child will benefit from Bowen’s Pre-K program. For more information about Bowen’s Pre-K program, please contact Bowen’s Director Nina Tebaldi at 617-332-3923 or visit for more details and our online application form.
