IBA’s Preschool is a full day, year-round program, licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) and nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Founded in 1976, IBA’s Preschool is the first bilingual program (Spanish-English) in the State of Massachusetts.
Our primary goal is to create a safe, nurturing educational environment for children between 2.9 and 5.5 years old that we serve. We prepare children for their future schooling by developing students’ emotional, physical and intellectual skills. IBA’s educators work in partnership with students’ families to further foster each child’s development.
All Boston children who are 4 years old by September 1, 2020, qualify for Boston Public Schools Universal Pre-K program at IBA’s Preschool. The preschool program is a full six-and-a-half-hour school day at either a BPS school or at a community early learning center like us at no cost to families.
