This location provides excellent care and education for children ranging in age from six weeks through six years.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Regarding Open House: Please note our Marina Bay center is only available for virtual tours on weekdays, by appointment only. We’d love to have you. To book a private tour, please call 1-866-MY-KIDCO.
I am Darlene Fennelly, the Center Director of Kids & Company Marina Bay in Massachusetts. I attended Eastern Nazarene College where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and a minor in Early Education. I have been working in child care for over 40 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 1991. Child care is extremely gratifying; every day is not alike, and you get to be a part of a community that helps children learn, grow, and develop to their greatest potential. Working as a child care provider, you can give children a good start in life by assisting them in developing social skills in a safe and caring atmosphere that fosters learning through play. I love and believe in Kids & Company’s core values. I also feel Kids & Company is a very compassionate and understanding company. Marina Bay is set on a beautiful boardwalk on the water looking out at Boston Harbor. We are in a very nice business building on the first floor. Now that I’ve told you about me, I would love to meet you! Come visit our Marina Bay center for a visit and see all that Kids & Company has to offer.
At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
