Lower School

The
Best
Beginning

Consider how the first formal learning experiences set the stage for a child’s enjoyment of learning and future academic development. The PK, Kindergarten, and elementary years are when children first learn to think and make connections, laying the neural pathways for more complex cognitive growth. Consider, too, how a child’s first school influences his or her sense of self and experience of community. At Brimmer, we nurture the whole child for the best possible beginning. We seek to develop intellectual, physical, social, and emotional skills to ensure that our youngest students feel valued as individuals, connected as community members, and supported every day as they learn with joy and grow in every way.

Kimberly Formisano, Head of Lower School

There is nothing better than the hum of a classroom community at work. Students who are engaged and invested in their work to the point of being unaware of the passage of time is when the magic of learning and growing happens.
