Child-Centered Education that Makes a Difference

Ready Set Learn is a private Preschool and Pre-K and located in the heart of Pittsfield. We are dedicated to providing an exceptional educational experience for your child. Our school offers a safe, nurturing environment that encourages children to explore their interests and develop new skills while having fun!

You won’t find another school like ours anywhere else in the area! With our low student-to-teacher ratio and one-on-one attention from highly qualified teachers who love what they do, it's no wonder so many parents choose us as their first choice when looking for childcare or early childhood education for their kids.

Our Mission

Here at Ready Set Learn Preschool, we believe in equal play and learning. Our goal is to ensure that your child has a fun, happy, and progressive experience; that leaves them confident, and Kindergarten ready. 98% of our children get a near perfect score on the school readiness test known as the DABERON.

Play is crucial for child development, but ensuring readiness is vital to their growth in the new environment of public school. Our structured schedule mimics that of the public school, providing a strong academic foundation while providing multiple opportunities for free play both inside and outside daily.
