Early Childhood Program Offerings


At Hathaway Brown we feel our students benefit from our enriched curriculum and widely diverse program. Because our days are busy with academic learning, transitioning to specialty classes and the pace is quick, we pay close attention to the social and emotional development as well as the age of the child while going through the admission process. Below you will see a breakdown of our program offerings and the typical ages of children. We encourage you to apply for the program that best fits your needs and the Admission Committee will make recommendations based on their assessments. Spending three years in our Early Childhood is often indicated for children with summer or early fall birthdays.
