Preschool Social Academy

50 Cross St., Winchester, MA

Costimate: $220/wk

The Preschool Social Academy offers a professionally designed, thematic curriculum; complete with lesson plans, assessments, portfolios and newsletters for parents to use as a guide.

Children learn through hands on play and structured activities in our well organized learning centers. Our classroom is organized into "learning environments." These are the places within our classroom where the children can find the toys and materials related by theme, interest, and skills. These activities and toys can be used independently by the children, socially with others, or with teacher direction, to reinforce and enrich skills and concepts they need. Learning environments are an excellent way to individualize the curriculum to meet the varying needs of young children.

PSA has won first place in the Best Of Winchester Guide 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015!!

After attending an open house to meet all of the teachers, viewing each classroom, and filling out and turning in our application with a small application fee, we were so pleased to be accepted! The process was simple! My son enjoyed his time at PSA! We loved all of the outside time, fun theme related activities and interactions with teachers! My son especially loved the special activities planned for each day, especially the face painting and having a lemonade stand! It is great that they have their own kitchen and chef! I loved how my son got to try new healthy foods and how it saved me time that would have been used to pack one! Also seeing his friends eating the same healthy lunch helped my picky eater try more! I would definately recommend this school to anyone looking for a fun learning experience!

Red Apple

91 Belmont St, Everett, MA

Starting at $350/wk

Red Apple is a bilingual family child care that provides a fun educational curriculum. Children will have a great day while they learn new things. The daily interaction with the children is what we find so satisfying. We love watching the reading process unfold and never tire of helping children unlock the mysteries of print. We also love all the ways that children come to make sense of their world-through dramatic play, art, music, investigations, thinking mathematically, playing around with language. We like creating opportunities for their learning and supporting and challenging them as they figure things out.
Our daycare offers a range of educational services depending on the age of the child. For infants, we focus primarily on emotional development, relationship, and developmental tasks, and are acutely aware of the integrated nature of all these domains of development. We show them the appropriate ways to use the equipment. We make as much as more eye to eye interaction, verbal language, and appropriate equipment to help them to explore the world. We do skin to skin contact with infants to let them feel safety and security. We guide them to practice sit, crawl, stand, walk, and develop their language skills.
Toddlers, Preschoolers, and School-age children are given an explanation of what they are doing that is inappropriate and redirected or told what is appropriate. We guide them to practice sharing, helping, and cooperating. We help them to improve social/emotional, cognitive, physical, and language skills. We plan the appropriate curriculum to improve their academic skills, such as literacy, problem-solving, and creative development.
I am licensed by The Department of Early Education and Care. Our language is English and Mandarin. We provide fresh homemade breakfast, lunch, and snacks every day to all children.
We hope the families could cooperate with us to support our children to be successful in meeting later school expectations.
Please contact me at my email: redapplechildcare2015@gmail.com or call my cell #617-669-7392 with any questions you have. I would love for you to visit my daycare.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you.

Our 6m old baby has been with Peapod since she was 3.5m old, and we hope to keep her there for as long as possible. After reading the other reviews, I could not understand how a baby can tell you if she likes being there or not. But when we handed her to Shannon at the very first visit, I was stunned that our baby was smiling, cooing, and fell asleep in her arms. Our baby picked the daycare! What I like about Peapod: - They have an organized system w the milk in the fridge so it doesn't get mixed up. - They follow our instructions if we ask for this or that to be done. - They might not know our baby at first, but they know babies(!), and eventually know our baby very well since she spends 10 hrs/day there. - Our baby benefits significantly from the interaction with the other toddlers. She watches them and learns from them. She now has many unofficial 'big brothers and big sisters'. Our baby definitely finds the other kids more interesting than adults (we're boring). - We get daily photo/text updates. - We get daily documentation of feeding, naps, and diaper changes. - The exposure to english, cantonese, and mandarin is a huge benefit for us. - Shannon, Jenny, and Mrs. Luk are very passionate about the growth & development of the babies/infants. You can tell they really enjoy it. - We're new parents and don't really know what we're doing, but we've actually learned how to interact w our baby better by watching how they sing/ talk / play with baby. - They're also extremely affordable and have way more competitive rates than the Bright Horizons of the world. - They are bringing out the best in our baby and helping her become all that she can be! Anyway, we're very happy that we found Peapod and whole heartedly recommend them. Keep up the good work!
