Pleasant Times Learning Center is a licensed child care provider in Winthrop, MA, and has been servicing the community since 1993. We provide quality child care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Our program is unlike any other. Our philosophy is to create an environment that encourages children to explore themselves and the world around them. We help each child reach developmental milestones through hands on activities, planned curriculum (reading, writing, math, science, etc.), and outside play. It's not about the final product that the child creates, we believe it's about the process the child takes to get there! Our children have so much fun each day they don't even realize they're learning!

The staff at Pleasant Times is absolutely one of a kind! We have staff members that have been with the program for 20+ years! Each staff member undergoes professional training's in order to make sure the concepts of child development are understood. We use this training to create an environment that's exciting and inviting, while provoking curiosity in each child.

Pleasant Times uses an app that can be downloaded to any smart phone. Once logged in, you can follow your child's day, send messages, and even see pictures! This is a great way to stay connected to your child as well as the staff and director.

We currently have limited spots available in our infant, toddler and preschool classrooms. Give us a call today at 617-846-5813 to set up a tour. We look forward to meeting you!

We feel so lucky to have found Tartt's; it's hard to imagine a better place for our daughter. The staff members are welcoming, friendly, and super helpful -- very responsive by phone and email, and delightful and polite in person. But the teachers are where Tartt's really shines. They get to know each student personally, and adapt their teaching to that child's needs. The curriculum is a perfect mix of structured projects and free play. At every age our daughter's teachers have balanced rules and fun masterfully. When she graduated from one classroom to another, her teacher cried to see her go! The teachers are caring, thoughtful, creative, and pleasant. Tartt's has gone above and beyond in a post-pandemic setting -- temperature checks, masks, sanitizer, separate entrances -- to make students and parents feel safe and comfortable. We recommend Tartt's without reservation, and will be truly sad when our daughter graduates! We only hope to find as welcoming and caring a school for kindergarten and beyond.

My program is a small, mixed-age group, and we all become very attached to each other--it really is very much like a family. I am located in Boston, close to the Longwood Medical Area. I have a well-equipped home with three levels of interesting space and a small backyard. We also have a wagon-for-six for trips around the neighborhood, and a minivan filled with car seats (and with a triple stroller folded up in back) for field trips to the zoo, the science museum, and other cool places around Boston. The mixed-age grouping contributes to a cooperative rather than a competitive environment--it's the norm to have a different skill level, since children are different ages, and your friends will just naturally offer to help if you don't know how to do something.

The curriculum is child-centered and play-based, by which I mean that I guide activities mostly by preparing the environment and selecting the playthings. Then I let the children engage in play and discovery. I'm here to model appropriate behavior, set limits, read books, add or subtract materials, keep everybody clean, fed, safe, and loved, and generally keep things moving smoothly. We have a wonderful time!

I have three major goals for the children in my group: positive self-concept, social skills, and language skills. If you are confident and excited about your world and your ideas, know how to make and keep friends, and communicate well, you are well on your way to academic and personal success.

I am licensed for six children, but prefer to have a group of four or five per day, depending on the ages of the children. I sometimes do have six children, when alumni come to visit or when I simply can't work out the schedule any other way. Children typically start the program at age one and continue until age four or five.

I try to provide everything so that parents don't have to pack a huge bag each day. Food, diapers, and field trip expenses are all included in the daily rate--there are no extra charges. I serve a lacto-ovo-vegetarian menu. There are lots of pets--turtle, geckos, fish--which provide a wonderful anchor for the science curriculum, since they all need different food and different environments. We also do things like hatching chicken eggs, planting seeds, making collections of pine cones and other natural objects. A dog and two cats live in the house, and petting and playing with them contribute a lot of comfort and interest. Two openings for 9/20.

I can't recommend Ellen or "Ellen's House" highly enough. Ellen is warm, kind, fun, and just overall a magical person. Kid's love her and she handles all of childhood's woes with grace. My son asks to go to Ellen's House almost every weekend day and is delighted every time at drop off. Ellen sneaks learning into everything the children do and I've especially seen great improvement with my son's emotional regulation. Ellen's home is filled with amazing nooks and play spaces and many fun surprises (a mud kitchen, an outdoor teacup, an indoor ball pit) that add to the magic of the place. We are hooked and will be very sad when my son ages out to Kindergarten!

Mercantile KinderCare is truly a special place! The team is extremely organized, professional, and everyone genuinely cares about each child and family who is a part of the community to ensure amazing care and learning. Mercantile has all of the resources of a national KinderCare brand, but they bring their own local flavor that makes them unique and personal. 110% recommend! Talking specifics: The center directors are incredible - excellent communication, organized, fair, and great leaders for their team. You can tell they love what they do they really work to make you feel comfortable so you can focus on work while your child is in their care. The teachers are true gems - they are patient, listen and adjust to needs of your child and genuinely care and love the kids. We have met some amazing people and love knowing our child has developed under their guidance and support! The facility is bright, convenient, clean, and secure - The space is just full of warmth and personality. They have room for strollers (which is a nice feature not all centers in the city are able to accommodate), and they really utilize their location in the city (walks to parks, see the seals at the aquarium, the greenway/sprinklers in the summer, etc). They also have awesome hours which gives some nice flexibility. The program is comprehensive - they develop tons of fun activities and an engaging curriculum to help your child learn and develop. They keep them busy and the kids love it! They also have an app so you can get updates and photos throughout the day which is really nice. Overall, they pay attention to all the little stuff that just adds up to make you feel comfortable and great about sending your child here. 10/10!

To anyone considering sending their children to Sunkissed Acorns: Both my girls attended Sunkissed Acorns from 3 months of age until pre-K and we couldn't possibly recommend them enough. Mabel, Carla, Kelly, Mancy, Ping, and the whole staff at Sunkissed Acorns are incredibly warm, caring, and thoughtful people. In the early days, they helped kids (and us parents) adjust to the daycare drop-off routine and progress through the rapidly advancing developmental phases. Whether it was letting us know when to get bigger diapers, help introducing foods, or reinforcing potty training they were with us every step of the way. In the later years, they taught our girls excellent socialization skills like how to play in groups, manage their belongings, and clean up their messes. On the academics side, they taught our girls letters, numbers, arts, science, and even a bit of Chinese! When COVID-19 took us all by surprise they were temporarily closed like many others, but their communication was clear and consistent throughout. As soon as things were ready to open back up, they implemented thoughtful procedures to maximize hygiene and minimize risk to families and staff. In summary, we absolutely recommend Sunkissed Acorns to any families looking for a safe, diverse, and enriching early education environment.
