Family FUNdamentals Childcare
Offering licensed family daycare in residential Shrewsbury home (less than 2 miles from UMASS) run by 2 adult licensed professionals 8am-5:30pm Mon-Fri.
*Home based childcare gives you the best of both of both worlds...we teach...but we hug too...we have rules and lessons like the "big" schools, but with the joy of more flexibility and a family environment...we still celebrate holidays and have a family tree every year...but are open to including everyone's holidays into our celebrations....everyone has birthday parties with us...and we are always here even when it snows...something the centers cannot give you...since there are two of us you do not need to worry about us closing for personal appointments or illnesses...and with the smaller numbers in a family daycare environment, and our careful hand washing and use of hand sanitizers you will deal with far fewer illnesses than your child would endure and have to be exposed to in a large child care center (with really scary illnesses like H1N1 that is a HUGE issue)…just a few of the advantages to family childcare with two loving licensed experienced providers*
