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 special educators have earned master’s degrees, and can see children at home, in community settings, or within our co-op playgroups. Playgroup classrooms are designed to promote successful, independent exploration while meeting each child at their ability. Our playgroups are inclusive environments and 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 playgroups are managed by multidisciplinary teams, which include a general education lead teacher, assistant teacher, and may include a special educator, speech therapist, and motor therapist. For each Boyer child, these teams focus on individual goals through collaboration with their parents and caregivers. Playgroup tuition is very reasonable and tuition waiver assistance is also available to families that apply. Click here for current tuition rate information.

Promoting Self-Esteem, Cooperation and Respect for Diversity

Boyer’s inclusive playgroups 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. Playgroups have rolling enrollment, year-round. Please contact the Education Department Manager for current availability.
