Education

At Boyer, we believe that every child is capable of learning.

Boyer’s education program is geared at improving cognitive, communication, motor and social skills. All of our teachers have earned Masters degrees, and the classroom environment is designed to promote successful, independent exploration while meeting each child at their ability. Our classrooms include side-by-side learning of typically-developing children and children with various developmental delays or disabilities.

Boyer’s unique educational programming and low child-to-staff ratio is unparalleled by other schools. All classrooms are managed by multidisciplinary teams, which include a head teacher, assistant teacher, speech and language pathologist, occupational or physical therapist, social worker, nurse and other appropriate staff. For each Boyer child, these teams focus on individual goals — both in the classroom and at home — through collaboration with their parents and caregivers.

Promoting Self-Esteem, Cooperation and Respect for Diversity

Boyer’s inclusive classrooms provide a safe, caring environment and a creative and fun atmosphere where children of differing abilities can grow and learn together. Our goal is to have each child experience success in a variety of ways, thus building their confidence in their own ability to grow and learn.
