Welcome to the Tobin Family of Schools, leaders in early childhood education! The first iteration of the Tobin Family of Schools opened as a toddler/preschool program for 24 children on September 2, 1980 by our founder, Mary Beth Claus Tobin.

Today our schools are located in Natick, Westwood, and Needham. The Natick and Westwood schools are owned and led by Mary Beth Claus Tobin. The Needham schools are known as The Tobin Beaudet Schools, and are owned and led by Ms. Tobin's daughter, Stephanie Beaudet (est 2012). All our programs offer the very best in early childhood education and school-age group care.

The Tobin Family of  Schools was founded upon the principles that children grow and learn in a warm, supportive, diverse, and mutually respectful environment. At the Tobin Family of Schools, we strive to nurture and challenge the whole child to reach his/her maximum potential.

Whether you are seeking a great early education experience, engaging afterschool care for your school-age child, or a career with a professional, experienced group of educators? We'd love to hear from you!
