The Children's Place at Phillips Academy

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! From infancy and beyond, our goal is to foster your child’s growth and development. The science lab in our kindergarten prep classroom is the perfect place to experiment and explore. Our Outdoor Classrooms and gardening boxes encourage an interest in the environment with nature-inspired activities, and the Smart Boards help develop skills in computer science. The shaded playground includes lots of natural elements and provides plenty of room for unstructured downtime. Plus, Preschool and Kindergarten  love our field trips to Phillips Academy and downtown Andover. Stop by for a tour and to meet our expert staff!
