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.

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.

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!

BCJ is a wonderful, family focused, home daycare. We have had our daughter there since she was 6 months old (she's 2 now) and we have seen tremendous gains in her emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Staff are caring, knowledgeable, and provide very focused individual care to the kids. It is clear that Domitila and her staff love their work and treat the kids with as much love and care as if they were their own. It is a relief to know our daughter is learning, having fun, and thriving when she is not at home. I highly recommend BCJ to any parent looking for excellent care.

Stepping Stones Family Care

47 Clifton Street, Malden, MA

Stepping Stones is a warm and nurturing community where your infant, toddler, or preschool child will thrive socially and academically. It is a fully licensed daycare/preschool that is run by a BPS teacher and mother of two from a gorgeous and spacious Victorian home across the street from a newly renovated playground and park in Malden, Massachusetts. A little bit about me, the director of Stepping Stones Family Care, my name is Nicole Tamarisk, and I am a mother of two, but I am also a Public School English Teacher with over 8 years of teaching experience. Since Stepping Stones is only offering a total of five spots for prospective clients, the teacher to student ratio will allow me to work closely with each child and his/her family from infancy throughout the toddler and preschool years. This type of setting allows me to support these future scholars as they grow and develop. I am offering mixed aged groups (Infancy through preschool) the chance to learn and thrive in a family environment. For the preschoolers, I plan on providing instruction on letters, numbers, and a curriculum based largely on the Montessori method that fosters independence and a love of learning in children. I also plan to provide yoga, music, and Spanish instruction for the students.

I am really excited to be able to continue raising my family and getting an opportunity to be closer to them, while still teaching, which is what I love to do! The daily routine offered here at Stepping Stones will create an environment where your children can experience a variety of planned and unplanned (yet intentional) activities. Your child will thrive under a balance of active and quiet times and in individual and multi-aged group settings. Family childcare settings are usually much smaller than childcare centers and for that reason, the amount of personal attention your child will be receiving will be of the highest quality. As a public school teacher with more than eight years of experience, it is of the utmost importance to me to provide an environment for children where they will learn and thrive. In our circle time children will sit together to sing a song, we will go over the calendar and the days of the week. We will explore a seasonal and/or thematic curriculum that helps kids learn the seasons, holidays, and how to be responsible citizens in their community. Our family care could certainly provide the right stepping stones for your children's future. Please make an appointment today.
