Plowshares was incorporated in 1976 as a tax-exempt, non-profit early education and child care program, designed to provide stimulating, enriching and nurturing learning experiences for young children and families living and working in Newton and the surrounding communities. Today the agency operates three locations, all housed within Newton public school buildings and provides the highest quality educational and care services available to more than 200 families.
We are proud that Plowshares was one of the first combined pre and after school programs accredited by NAEYC in Massachusetts and the nation. Boston Magazine recognized Plowshares one of the top preschool programs in the Boston area. And now our preschool is seeking to be one of the first four star QRIS centers in the state!
Program services available include: Toddler, preschool, nursery, after-school and summer fun camps for both preschoolers and school-age children.
