A Happy Place Since 1974
When my parents established The Boulevard School in 1974, they had a vision for early childhood education that was rooted in one word: Love.
They wanted to create an educational environment where children felt nurtured and nourished, safe and supported, and inspired to explore all aspects of growth and development with a sense of adventure.
The Hebrew phrase, Tikkun Olam, which roughly means, “repairing the world” captures the essence of their core belief: that in preparing children to be confident, capable, caring human beings we will contribute to a better world.
I believe this mission to cultivate an ecosystem of love is the reason we’re still here 50 years later, with many second-generation families who drive by and say, “That’s my school!”
Our school is an extension of your home, and a place where students, siblings, parents, teachers and administrators are like family. We look forward to welcoming you into the fold.
Your Partner In Success,
Ms. Rodi, M.S. Ed; M.S.W., Head Administrator
Our Guiding Values
With more than 50 years in business, we’ve seen it all. The fads, the fails, and the bright futures written on little faces. We use these guiding values to stay grounded in the ever-changing environment of education
What’s in our backpack?
We believe growth comes at the intersection of evidence-based practices, diverse perspectives, and lived experience.
Here's what we bring with us on all our learning journeys.
Meet your allies, for every step of the early education journey
Are we your perfect place?
Well, we can’t tell you that, but here's what our community of kids and parents are saying
Not a month goes by that our girls do not comment on the wonderful years they attended this preschool. My three daughters started in Mommy & Me with amazing Carol, and continued through the entire program to graduation. The major strengths of this school are their personnel, the grounds, the brightness of the classrooms and all the special extras that they do throughout the year, especially Grandparents Day. Often my girls still go back to the school to visit their teachers and the office staff. We will forever be grateful to this school for the amazing start they provided our girls.
My son just finished the summer camp at the Boulevard School & we couldn't be happier with his time there! First off, I'd like to say that this was my son’s first time being away from me & in a school type setting without me being there. Can I also mention that in the short period of time my son was there for summer camp, he finally mastered the tricycle (which was a hard motor skill for him), he learned how to socialize & interact with his classmates & has grown so much! He is still talking about how much he misses Ms. Shamsi & his classmates as I write this review!
There is NOTHING like Boulevard School. Their teachers, office staff and all others are simply amazing. You can tell that the staff treat each child like their own and the care and nurture is like nothing I have ever experienced. WE LOVE BOULEVARD SCHOOL!
Both of my sons attended The Boulevard School for three years; age two, three, and four. I truly loved my experience here. Not only did they treat both of my children with tremendous care and respect but they also truly loved them for exactly who they are. The school was a wonderful place for my children to learn and grow in those crucial developmental years. Not only do they love and care for the children here but they also understand what an important role they play in supporting a working family.
I started in Mommy & Me, and then did a transition class. My daughter had separation anxiety level a million and I was worried and panicked she wouldn't be ready for the 2's class. I asked if Rodi, the director, would observe her. Rodi couldn't have possibly been any nicer and instantly made me feel like everything was ok. She gave me options and we came to a decision together, myself, Rodi, and Mrs Carole. My daughter is now in the 2's and I couldn't be any happier. I couldn’t imagine Emma anywhere else!
I went to The Boulevard School as a child couldn't wait to check it out when my son was of age to attend. When I did a tour I was thrilled to see that it was still the same loving, fun and academic place that I remembered as a child. I was nervous about how my son would be transitioning away from me. The teachers were great at working with his individual personality to get him to thrive. He now participates in all the activities (he even naps there even though he doesn't at home!!) and comes home happy and tired from all the running around/playing too.
