Hi all -
As you may know, quality infant daycare in the Cambridge area is at a
real premium, and we've been doing some major searching for our
13-month-old lately. We found a family home daycare that we really
liked and wanted to send our daughter to, but it's a bit far from where
we live given my summer schedule, so I wanted to let you all know about
the immediate openings and put a plug in for Mama Bear Day Care since we
can't use the spot ourselves.
Kimberlee Gonsalves runs it from her apartment in Central Square in
Cambridge (less than 5 min from the T) which is small but really nicely
arranged with cubbies for the kids, lots of toys and books, and a couple
of different spaces for playing. She currently has 2 sweet toddlers and
her own 8 month old but one of the toddlers will be moving soon - she is
certified for up to 6, but she prefers to keep it to 4 kids, so the
ratio is really small and cozy. She's been doing the daycare for the
last 4 years and was a preschool teacher before that. I checked out a
number of home daycares and this was the one that really stood out for
the way the kids just loved Kim - her caring, warmth, calm, and gentle
firmness created a really nice environment. She was also flexible in
terms of days and hours (ie full time/part time, etc.), which was a big
plus as well.
Kim's email is: kim_gon at mac.com and her phone number is 617-945-0414.
Hope someone can take advantage of the opening!
