Dear Families,
My name is Carla and I am a state licensed EEC childcare provider. I am CPR certified and have first aid training skills. I have had background checks as part of my licensing requirement. I keep current on all required course work and learning workshops provided by the state. I worked at a private preschool for 1 year before deciding to venture into family home childcare. I also am licensed as an EEC preschool teacher.
Although I am licensed for 6 children, I prefer 2 or 3 at a time. I cared for a set of twins for 1 1/2 years and love it. They left for a preschool spot at 2.9 years. They are very much still a part of my family. I then cared for a 3 year old toddler and newborn that were from the neighborhood. Grandparents retired and wanted to look after them. Now, I am currently caring for a 9 month old. I would love to work with 1 other family that has 1 or 2 children.
I offer a great little program and a loving home environment. I have recommendations from previous parents and the director of the school. My daily routine consists of story time, music and movement, circle time, outdoor playtime and activities (40 x 40 fenced in space), arts & crafts and nap time. I love children and feel caring for them is the most important job you can have.
Please contact me at my email carlagill64@aol.com or my cell#617-512-7041 with any questions you have. I would love for you to visit my home. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
Carla

Carla Gill has cared for my son for over three years, from the age of 3 months until 3.10. Our family has had a wonderful experience with her care. She provides a warm home environment that I am grateful my son has been able to spend his days in. Carla is very particular with each child's individual needs and gives them personalized attention. She has taken a vested interest in my son as a person, starting with helping him through sitting up and his first solids through potty training. As he has grown, Carla has worked with him on academic development such as colors, letters, shapes - and now actual reading. She even helped him learn his ABCs in French. He has thrived under her teaching and is well ahead in reading and numbers for his age. The children are able to have free play inside and outside in the good weather, so there is plenty of unstructured time as well. My son is now entering full day preschool and I'm very sad to leave Carousel Child Care as it has been such a positive part of his life.

I am Shabana, mother of 3 children, certified curriculum coordinator, director and lead teacher for children, aged birth to 8 years. I have 18 yrs of experience in early childhood education.

Learning Cottage is a curriculum and theme based licensed family daycare and aftercare for toddlers through preschoolers. We provide a fun and play-based learning environment for little learners to develop their cognitive, motor, social, and emotional skills. My daughter attended the school for three years and our graduates have demonstrated excellent results in the classroom and beyond. I am proud to say our alums have gone on to win state-level awards in math and science.

I believe good health is equally important so we provide healthy and nutritious snacks and meals. If your child is a fussy eater, this is the place to be as we use encouraging techniques to help them learn to eat independently.

Our teachers are warm, attentive, caring, kind, experienced, and licensed by the DEEC. We have a diverse body of students and teachers and languages spoken in school besides English are Spanish, French, Arabic, Nepali, Urdu, and Hindi.

Weather permitting, we take kids out to our huge, safe and fenced playground for play, nature walks, birds watching, water play (summer) and many more fun activities. We also have short dance and Zumba sessions every day. Don't be surprised if your non-dancer kid asks you to dance with them at home!

Things to know:

- We encourage only potty trained kids (including kids with special needs) but diaper is provided if they need it for nap time.
- We take kids on field trips once a month (every week in summer).
