Dear Families,

Welcome to the Virginia Barton Early Childhood Center community! We are highly committed to nurturing the needs of our youngest learners in Lynn. We strive to create a solid foundation for their educational future. Our group of learners are unique and special in many ways.

We are dedicated to understanding each child's individual needs and providing a standards-based, wholistic approach to support them. Our well-balanced curriculum includes integrated units and weekly experiences in subject areas such as music, art, technology, and physical education.

It is our hope that your child will enjoy their time at school with our extremely dedicated, enthusiastic staff who are eager to partner with you and help our Little Lynners grow in so many ways. We know that the children's caretakers are their primary and most important teachers, and we hope to foster a partnership that will strengthen your child's ability to develop cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally.

While our school days are certainly busy supporting the students, we appreciate the opportunity to communicate with you regularly. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns and we will make the time to talk. We value and understand that the school-home partnership has a positive, long-lasting impact on our learners.

Thank you for trusting us with your little learners. We look forward to watching them grow and develop together.

Mary Kinahan, Ed.D
