When I was growing up, I was always taking care of the younger kids in the family. Later, I went to boarding school, where I also helped care for the kids in younger grades-so I was really drawn to children right away!

After I graduated from school, I taught second grade and worked as a social worker with low-income, at risk youth in India. Then, I had two children of my own, and I wanted to make sure they received a high-quality education. I also wanted to keep working in child care, so I decided I could achieve both goals by opening my own program in my home. It was a great decision-I love teaching the children in my program and supporting local families.

I feel very lucky that I was able to discover my passion at such a young age and dedicate my entire life to working with young children! Being around kids motivates me to work harder every day. No other job can give you that.

We have daily schedules and goals. We do circle time, arts and crafts, writing, songs-and we love playing outside. As a teacher, integrating education into our days is very important to me, so I'm always working in different learning opportunities. For example, we do science experiments (like getting caterpillars and watching them transform into butterflies!), and I like to incorporate different languages into our lessons and songs to celebrate other cultures.

My favorite activity is actually doing puzzles with the children. It's fun, educational, practices hand-eye coordination, and is a great opportunity to be on their level and connect with them. Of course, circle time is also special, when I get to know each one of them personally.

I think parents often have the idea that a high-quality child care program has to have a lot of fancy equipment. But the value of the program is really in the educators themselves. I am a professional teacher, and I draw on decades of experience when running my program. There's a lot that goes into teaching and child care that isn't always obvious at first glance, and it definitely isn't as simple as having the latest toys or technology.

I am Shirley Connolly, the owner and operator of Taught A Lot childcare in Tewksbury, MA. I offer a loving and safe environment for children from infants to 5 years. I have been caring for children for over 30 years.
I am licensed and certified by The Department of Early Education and Care. I am also a certified preschool teacher. I am also an educator for infants and toddlers. My assistant is also certified by EEC and has years of training and experience. We have been working together as a team for almost 10 years!!!
We provide a curriculum that is based on the individual needs of the children enrolled. We work with our preschoolers on social, emotional, physical and cognitive/intellectual needs daily. Some children need help with social skills, others need help with refining fine motor (Fingers for writing skills) development, others need practice with identifying letters and shapes, self help skills, etc. We find these strengths and weaknesses and build upon them.
We believe children learn best from open ended experiences. Children are free to explore all medias of craft materials. They find their own creativity with no right or wrong way.
Many, many of our past childcare children have been known to win art shows in elementary school from having such early art experiences while with us. We go way beyond coloring in pages!!!! We have many weekly themes to make learning fun!
Our infants and toddlers are engaged and stimulated through story books, music and movement, children's songs and interactions from adults and little friends in our program. They learn baby signs as it is proven to help them learn speech and language skills at an earlier age. It builds self esteem and helps them to communicate their needs with peers and adults. This is even before they can talk!
We are trained yearly in infant and child CPR & First Aid. We are members of a USDA food program and we serve Breakfast, lunch and snacks at no additional charge.
A daily midday email is sent out to all families about their child's daily activities. The hours are 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mon-Fri.
We are a family business and value what we have to share with other families.
Give us a call to come out to visit our home based program!!!
Love is the Bridge from our home to yours!
