The Story of
Mother Hubbard Pre-School

Dick and Dottie Vecchiolla have owned and operated Mother Hubbard's since 1961. It has always been our policy to maintain high quality care at a price which is affordable. The high number of second generation children who attend and the number of graduates who return in order to work with our children testifies to the happy memories which our children carry with them.

We believe in the uniqueness of each child and we strive to be sensitive to their physical, emotional, intellectual, social and cultural needs.

Programs at
Mother Hubbard Pre-School

Infants, Toddlers and Pre-schoolers are enrolled for five full days weekly.


The Infant/Toddler programs provide two teachers per nine children in a loving, nurturing and safe environment in which children are encouraged to explore their environments. We not only provide carefully balanced active and quiet periods throughout the day, but also stimulation and a sense of security. As your infant grows and develops, he begins to express independent thoughts and to make his own choices. To help him learn through play, a variety of activities are available, from riding toys and climbing equipment, to music, art, stories and books. These experiences support development of language, self-esteem and motor skills.


The Pre-School programs (2.9 to 4.9 years) allow your child to build self esteem, confidence and social skills. Imagination and dramatic play combine to create an environment for growth. Our open-ended activity areas and curriculum open up a world of active learning. This allows children to develop significant relationships as they learn to cooperate. They also develop communication skills which allow them to interact appropriately with important adults in their worlds.


The Pre-Kindergarten program focuses on bringing out the special gifts and talents of each child. Language, art, science, math and music activities prepare children for life in a secure and supportive environment which fosters intellectual curiosity and creative thinking.


Our Kindergarten children attend a full day program at the public school. While they are here, our developmentally appropriate curriculum satisfies their curiosity for knowledge and prepares them for first grade.


Our School Age children are served breakfast before school and return to an afternoon snack. Teachers plan and prepare a stimulating environment in which children are challenged to learn through active exploration and interaction. If they (or you) wish, they can do their homework (with help if needed), play sports, or just relax, as we recognize that they have been in a structured setting all day.
