January 20, 2015 (Sandwich, MA)- The Hundred Acre School, an innovative new pre-school dedicated to principles of STEM education, announces today it will host a series of Open Houses throughout the month of January for families of both current and prospective students. Information will be available on new, lower tuition rates for the school.
“STEM education from the earliest ages as a way of training the workforce of the future is a priority in Massachusetts,” says Heritage President & CEO Ellen Spear. “This program contributes to that state-wide effort. “
