Bright Minds, Big Dreams: Our Students

Here at The Anne Brower School, we do more than just guide our students academically; we lovingly craft pathways to their brightest futures. Our unique ‘Full STEAM Ahead’ approach blends playful learning with key academic concepts, sparking a love for discovery in every area from science to the arts. We go beyond the basics, too — our nurturing educators are experts at uncovering and cultivating the special talents each child brings, building their confidence and joy in learning, every step of the way. It’s all about creating a happy, healthy foundation for lifelong success and smiles.

Children learn independence through engaging activities that encourage them to make choices, solve problems, and manage simple tasks on their own.

This development of self-reliance is crucial as it lays the foundation for confidence, decision-making skills, and the ability to navigate challenges in their future educational and personal lives.

At The Anne Brower School, children learn to:

Children gain self-awareness as they interact with peers and participate in varied activities, helping them understand their own emotions, preferences, and abilities.

This growth in self-awareness is essential, as it fosters a sense of identity and empathy, equipping them with the skills to navigate social relationships and personal challenges throughout their lives.

At The Anne Brower School, children learn to:

Our school offers a vibrant playground for creativity, where children engage in activities like art, storytelling, and imaginative play, sparking their innate ability to create and think critically.

This nurturing of creativity is vital, as it not only enriches their cognitive and emotional development but also instills a sense of innovation and problem-solving skills that will serve them in their academic careers.

our history

Celebrating Decades of Educational Excellence

The Anne Brower School, a center for innovative early childhood education in Huntington, began its journey in 1978 under the visionary leadership of Anne Brower.

For 37 years, Anne’s passion for integrative learning shaped the school into a beloved community pillar, going beyond traditional educational methods to embrace the holistic development of each child. Anne’s pioneering approach was centered on nurturing not just the mind but also the body and spirit of every child. Her legacy includes a vibrant curriculum infused with arts, music, sports, cross-cultural festivities, and even cooking classes for parents, all aimed at fostering a well-rounded preschool experience for the children.
In 2015, the stewardship of TABS was passed to Lisa Marie George, who brought her own style of dynamic educational practices while preserving the cherished community spirit of the school.

Embodying the ethos, “Once a part of the Anne Brower family, always a part of the Anne Brower family,” Lisa has continued to build on this legacy.

As an adept educator, Lisa introduced an array of modern educational programs at TABS, including project- and play-based learning, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) initiatives, and language instruction in both Spanish and American Sign Language.

Understanding the rhythms of contemporary parenting (herself a mother of three), Lisa has expanded the school’s offerings to include exciting educational programming beyond the traditional preschool hours.
