The mission of the Brookline Early Education Program is to provide an inclusive environment where all children from ages 3-5 can learn social competency, develop cognitive, motor and language skills and expand their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
The Brookline Early Education Program (BEEP) offers 22 classes throughout the town and serves children with a range of developmental levels and from diverse cultural backgrounds. There are 20 inclusive models and two specialized programs. Driscoll, Heath and Runkle elementary schools, Brookline High School, BEEP on Beacon, BEEP at Lynch and BEEP at Putterham are all programs for children before they enter kindergarten. BEEP Preschool programs are one year models that serve children ages 2.6- 3.2 and BEEP Pre-kindergarten programs are two year programs and serve children ages 3-5. BEEP serves more than 300 children across town. All classrooms are supervised by the Principal for Early Education and two Early Childhood Program Coordinators.
Small class size, highly qualified teaching staff, and small pupil-teacher ratios and multi-disciplinary teams combine to support children in the early years of their education.
