A Mom’s Village
The mission of A Mom’s Village is to make motherhood easier and more fun by creating a place where moms can connect and exercise while knowing their children are in good hands. In addition to basic childcare, the kids’ programming includes music classes, a summer stock program for little ones who have performance in their blood, and play school, a preschool-prep option.

Coastal Discoveries takes summer camp out to sea. Most program time during the one-week sessions is spent aboard Island Time, the program’s 48-foot boat, allowing kids to try their hand at fishing, haul in a lobster trap, explore islands, and maybe even get up close and personal with whales.

Few choices are as difficult for a parent as choosing the right care and education for their children. Magical Beginnings takes the stress out of the process with programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers that hinge on the belief that play and learning go hand-in-hand. Teachers tend to children’s social and emotional development, as well as the building blocks for academic success.
