OVERVIEW

Lenox Children’s Center is a relative newcomer to the Massachusetts Preschools although it has been in operation for 28 years. Unlike its Stockbridge neighbor (and most of the schools we have reviewed), the Lenox Children’s Center provides programs for children as young as one month old. Typically this creates an environment in which the preschool doesn’t received the dedication required. This however is not the case with Lenox Children’s Center. The preschool program excels and the environment supports both academic and emotional growth.

TUITION

Tuition widely varies depending on the programs but the average is around $10,000/year.

Pine Cobble School

163 Gale Road
Williamstown, MA
phone: 413.458.4680
website: www.pinecobble.org
OVERVIEW

"A good beginning never ends" – the unofficial motto of Pine Cobble School is perhaps the best way to sum up what parents think of Pine Cobble. The greatest testament to the strong community Pine Cobble creates and its enduring commitment to education is buried in its own history. Pine Cobble burned to the ground – literally to the ground – in 1970. Without any formal financial support or an endowment, the community rallied and rebuilt Pine Cobble in a single year. The School has flourished ever since and its excellence in preschool education continues to grow.

TUITION

Tuition is approximately $13,000.
