Sow Well Tots is on a mission to sow the seeds of well beings through nurturing, nature-based early childhood education for children of all backgrounds, ensuring that our school is a place where the cultural wholeness of children is seen and embraced.
There is nothing more hopeful than planting a seed! Your tax-free donation to Sow Well Tots is a seed that will grow with us. Your gift will help shore up our resilience and expansion as we move into a phase of growth, allowing our scholarship aid and accessability to remain a central part of our mission. We hope you will take time to follow us on social media and hear about how we “sow the seeds for well beings” through holistic education, land stewardship, farm-to-table foods, and an Afro-folk perspective on artful living and purposeful work. We can’t do it alone!

Sow Well Tots is an intimate, home-based, alternative, early childhood program in Bernardston, Massachusetts. Our regular school year runs from Sept.-June. Our hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. We serve wholesome, organic, home-cooked, vegetarian meals (morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack) and offer natural, open-ended toys, and provide infants with plenty of floor time for self-initiated development.
Sow Well Tots provides high quality care in a safe, nurturing environment with a child-driven rhythm. This means we will never interrupt the natural imaginative flow in order to force our own agenda. We tailor our daily routine to fit the developmental needs of all the children. We believe a well nurtured child will be better able to thrive as a student when the time for structured learning presents itself. The SWT home-based program offers a holistic rhythm with a nurturing, seasonal curriculum that includes daily outdoor play in the forest and garden, handwork and crafts, songs, finger plays, stories and puppetry.
Please note: if you are looking for a highly academic-driven curriculum for your child Sow Well Tots is not the place for you and your family. Our focus will be to prolong a vivid, imaginary, child-like way of being.
