Oak Haven Family Child Care

35 Lillian Road, Malden, MA

Costimate: $255/wk

The vision for this daycare was born out of the difficult experience of my own childhood. Being asked to sit still in a classroom for several hours a day was the opposite of my instinct to play in nature. I could hardly wait for recess to go explore rocks and trees and find peace and a feeling of being at home in the natural rhythms of the New England seasons.

I didn't want my daughter to have the same experience. So I sought to create an environment that was inspired by Montessori principles and Nature School principles. The goal is for children to be self-guided in their discovery of themselves as a part of the natural world. The curriculum and design of the space creates little separation between nature and the learning experience of the children. This allows them to freely engage in the mystery of nature and cultivates the wonder that all children naturally possess.

This means there is absolutely no technology or screens and much of the day is spent exploring the outdoors. The area is filled with mature oak trees, large rocks, hills, moss, and different types of plants. There is also an abundance of wildlife, from many species of birds to squirrels and chipmunks and even a family of groundhogs that lives on the premises (my daughter squeals with delight when she sees them).

The indoor area is adorned with trees, woodland animals and is inspired by Native American culture which is part of my ancestry. In fact, the Massachusetts tribe lived in this area at Pine Banks Park. Part of the curriculum is for children to go there and experience the sacred connection to nature that has been lost in modern society.
In summary, Oak Haven Daycare is designed to enable children to learn by freely exploring the wonders and mysteries of the natural world.

We realized the importance of giving children an early start in education and the amazing impact it can have on their lifelong development. Today, we continue to be an innovator in the field of early education by creating a learning approach that gives new meaning and dimension to the concept of literacy.

To ensure children are learning at a pace in which they can excel, our educators design individualized learning goals to guide them to the next level.
