Welcome to South Shore Conservatory
Preschool, PreK and Kindergarten!

 

South Shore Conservatory's arts-integrated Preschool, PreK and Kindergarten programs are uniquely creative educational experiences, combining all aspects of time honored early childhood activities with considerable exposure to the performing and visual arts. Young children are introduced to music, movement, literature, drama and the joy of individual creative expression in a warm, caring and accepting environment. A team of SSC specialists work consistently with all classes weekly to ensure that this expression is encouraged and celebrated. "Learning by doing" is the predominant theme that permeates the classroom experience and supports our mission. Our dedicated and talented teachers guide the children towards exploration and individual expression and through the gift of play they process and master the skills they have learned. It is a true privilege to participate in each child's personal journey through early childhood.

CONSERVATORY NOTES: Embracing arts-integrated programs

Every child is an artist. The need to create and express is inherent in all of us. When this need is nurtured, learning occurs, and wonderful things happen.

Wicked Local
By Rachel Gellis, Preschool/PreK/Kindergarten Director, South Shore Conservatory

Rachel Gellis

It was a crisp day in late autumn last year, as I strolled Bare Cove Park with my pooch in tow; typical after a long day. Instead of walking towards the water, which was our normal route, we decided to pick a new path. On that path we passed a beautiful, large building in a quiet, lovely neighborhood. Out of the windows bellowed the sounds of flutes, pianos, drums, and singing voices. Children were laughing and playing on the playground in the rear of building. Families congregated near an outdoor amphitheater chatting and smiling. What was this magical place? So, like anyone else does in the 21st century, I took out my iPhone and "googled it."

South Shore Conservatory. Interesting. I dove deeper into the website. That is when I saw it. An arts-integrated Preschool/PreK/Kindergarten program! It was as if fate had steered me away from the usual path to put me on this new path (literally and figuratively) where I belonged. I had spent my career previously as a preschool teacher in Braintree, and at that moment was working as a coach and mentor to educators to help enhance their curriculum on the South Shore. I was enrolled in a Master's Program through Lesley University in Education, specifically Integrating Teaching through the Arts. Clearly the conservatory is where I needed to be.

Here I am one year later, director of the arts-integrated Preschool/PreK/Kindergarten program. More than a month into the position, I have a deeper understanding of the many layers that make up the Conservatory. SSC is the "Cheers" of the South Shore; a place where everybody knows your name. As you enter the bright, sunny lobby, you are met with a smile and personal greeting by everyone with whom you cross paths. A place where you immediately feel comfortable, a necessity for learning to occur. Read more...
