The History of Adventures Preschool
How It All Began
In 1975, Linda Silvio, the founder of Adventures Preschool Children’s Center, started an after school care program in Belmont. With the support of her late husband Frank, they renovated their home to meet the family childcare regulations. By 1985, with the need for toddler and preschool care in high demand, Linda decided to move from home care to a dedicated center on Belmont St. By 1987, Linda expanded and opened a 2nd location in Watertown named Adventures Preschool Daycare Center. In 1997, Linda decided to combine the 2 centers into one in Belmont at the former St Luke’s Parish School. The name changed to: Adventures Preschool Children’s Center.
Change Of Ownership
In September of 2022, Linda Silvio decided to retire and sold Adventures Preschool Children’s Center to her long-time employee Lydia Sherman. Lydia worked as an administrator at the school from 1996-2022, and her own children are graduates from the center. Currently, Lydia manages our team of long-term teachers and staff with the help of our Center Director Sue Mele.
