Come meet us at one of our upcoming open house events.
Ethos Early Learning Center is excited to announce the grand opening of the South Boston location at 416 W. Broadway! Ethos is a new mindset and model for childcare and early education for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We never stop learning. The way we start learning is vital; it quite literally sets us up for life. Our mission is to use education as a seed to change the world. Ethos is a new approach to education designed to support, nurture, and enable future generations of socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally resilient young people. Together we can make a better future.
What is the future of education? For centuries, our approach to education has changed little, and yet life has changed significantly. We have evolved rapidly in what we understand about development, what we know about the brain, what we value in life, and how we apply it. Ethos is a new approach to education that addresses these changes. We combine existing proven best practice with research-based and science-backed insights into how young people optimally develop. We are socially responsible, design-driven, and community-led. We have embedded human values and principles of common sense in all that we do. Above all, we understand that what we do goes beyond providing a solution; we believe we are in service to our children’s future.
Our teaching approach is rooted in social constructivist theories that encourage children as individuals to explore, investigate, and manipulate objects and ideas, under the supportive guidance of highly qualified teachers. Development comes through self-determined testing and questioning of different situations. Ideas and opinions are actively invited and valued. Alongside more traditional learning domains, such as language, early literacy, physical development, mathematics, and science, we will engage our children daily with inquiring knowledge, culture, diversity, understanding their sense of self, building social and emotional development, too. Our goal is to nurture young people with an ability to learn for themselves, about themselves, and to empathize with others
We have utilized scientific research to create optimal environments for children and adults to feel secure. Whether in a state of relaxation or stimulation, safety and security allow people to be the best of themselves. We have engaged with world-renowned designers at Rapt Studio to develop a scheme for our interior world based on principles that support early development. We value design as a tool for enabling people and enhancing experiences. Our environments are spatially intuitive. We use a palette of materials, textures, and colors that have been actively chosen for their properties, not passively specified for trend or convenience. As a result, our Ethos centers support all who inhabit them in the spirit of shared, positive learning and development.
Learning and development are parts of life that go beyond the hours of a class or the walls of a school. We understand the fundamental importance of building close, collaborative relationships between parents and teachers. It’s vital to us that parents feel a part of their child’s development; we have built regular contact and meaningful interaction between teachers and parents as a core pillar of our practice. The parent is the child’s most influential teacher, and we believe Ethos should be a natural extension of the home. We understand parents’ needs and strive to offer total flexibility to support them as best we can, ensuring Ethos fits in their family lives. Our goal is to build a diverse and secure learning community for the children in our care.
Better bigger picture
Children are at the center of our world. We understand that children are people, with individual strengths and ideas. Our goal is to help them unlock their potential and support them in their vital early stages of development. Our mission at Ethos is to ensure we are helping develop a generation of happy, healthy young minds and hearts, capable of building a better future.
