The Cushman Scott Children's Center, a Preschool Located in Amherst, MA

    Cushman Scott Children's Center is an independent, non-profit educational center serving children ages 15 months to 6 years old and their families. Located in the lovely Amherst, MA, village of Cushman, the school is rich in history and beauty. Its bright, spacious classrooms create a home-like environment, with space for active play and quiet activities.

    Our educational philosophy is based on the Reggio Emilia Approach. Teachers balance structured activities with free play in a program that helps children to develop emotionally, physically and intellectually as they learn about themselves and the world around them.

    Our program offers the enriching educational opportunities of a traditional preschool, combined with optional summer and extended-day programs. We offer families flexibility in choosing which days their child attends and for how long, allowing each family to create the Cushman experience that is right for their child. 

    Please see our Mission Statement for more information about our purpose. 

    Non-Discrimination Policy

    Cushman Scott does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability.
