Our Classes

The Playschool Day

Charlestown Playhouse provides a 5-day-a-week, morning program from 9 am to 11:45 am.  Additionally, students in the Purple, Green, Orange and Blue Rooms have the option of a full day program (9 am-2:45pm) on Mon/Wed/Fri. This option is not available for our youngest group at this time. 

The Playschool year runs from September through June. 


Children aged 2 years, 7 months-old through 6 years-old are placed into one of five classrooms:

  • Yellow Room
  • Purple Room
  • Green Room
  • Orange Room
  • Blue Room/Kindergarten

Daily Program

Each classroom follows a daily routine that includes free choice, group time, snack time, and outdoor play. Once a week, each classroom makes their own special snack on cooking day.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Conferences are scheduled twice yearly to communicate child progress and growth. Teachers are available throughout the year for additional parent communication via e-mail and meetings.
