Opened in 2018, the St. Paul Street location is our first school in Brookline.
Our Brookline Preschool
Our fabulous Brookline location is located in St. Paul’s Church on St. Paul St., which sits nicely between Brookline Village and the Longwood Medical area. We are thrilled to have this beautifully designed, bright and sunny preschool as our home in Brookline. Our cozy preschool is boutique-ish with four small classrooms serving toddlers, preschoolers and PreK children. Our fenced in onsite playground is large, inviting, and perfect for exploring nature.
We look forward to meeting you on a tour of our space soon!
Bartola (Cherina) Contreras
Hello--my name is Bartola Contreras but I go by Cherina; I am the Director of Pine Village Preschool Brookline. I have been a member of the Pine Village team since September 2016, beginning as a Toddler, Preschool, and Pre-K teacher, and then BB-Kinder teacher, all at our PVP Brighton location. But I have been working in early education since 2014.
I am from the Dominican Republic and I moved to the United States in April 2014. I have a 12-year-old son named Jhostin. In our free time, we like to play basketball and play board games at home. From a very young age, I have always been drawn to children, and being able to teach them was like a dream. When I started college I was studying Accounting and after three years I understood that it was not my calling, so I changed my career and decided to study Child Psychology. At that time, I made the move to the United States. When I moved here I decided to focus on early childhood education which had a lot to do with what I wanted to study and have a passion about. I have been in the area of education for almost eight years; six of those years being at Pine Village Preschool.
I look forward to meeting you and saying hi to my new Amiguitos!!
