Where Your Child’s Education Can Reach New Heights

Birch Mountain Day School, Inc. was founded in 1995 based on the need for quality educational programming for young children. Located in Manchester, CT, we believe that what we offer is the best, balanced combination of education and day care. Our philosophy is that children come first.

Serving children from 3 months old to school-age, our curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices that incorporate language arts, sciences, mathematics, music, dramatic play, and gross motor skills. We facilitate a variety of hands-on activities to make learning fun and exciting.

“You and your staff go above and beyond. Very few people can say they love their jobs. It certainly shows with you and your staff...We feel so strongly about our daughter going to a school with the same ideals and moral values as us, and BMDS exceeded all our expectations.”

-Sarah K.

“Michael and Carly have been with you for the past 2½ years, and their experience at your center has been wonderful. You have all provided them with so much care, love, kindness, good values, and most of all, a fun place to grow and develop. We are so grateful for all that you’ve done.”

-The Robbins Family
