WELCOME to Kravenmore Kids Childcare. The children refer to me as Miss Kerri and this is the seventh year I've operated Kravenmore Kids. I am licensed by the State of Massachusetts for ten children. I'm blessed to have some truly incredible and very qualified assistants and some terrific families. I am a happily married mother of two grown children who attended the Waldorf School as part of their early education and are graduates of Beverly High.
SETTING: The childcare is located in a separate dedicated space in my home that was purpose built for childcare by my husband. The floors are heated, the furniture is custom built and the space is large bright and welcoming. There are separate napping rooms for the infants and the toddlers. There is an acre of property to play on. Our home sits atop a hill with sunshine abound for outside play, yet has a shaded play area to shelter the children from the summer sun. It's not uncommon to see the children tending the flower gardens by watering, weeding and picking flowers for inside. The children just naturally like to help and take part.
PRESCHOOL: We provide preschool for our three + year olds in our lovely sun room; located directly above the daycare. This is a wonderful convenience for our parents because they don't have to make special arrangements to transport children between childcare and preschool. The children experience consistent, high quality, instruction throughout their day.
CURRICULUM: The emphasis of the curriculum at Kravenmore Kids is the intertwining of age-appropriate stimulation with fun filled activities. The joy of learning, cultivation of imagination, and respect for one's self and others are the ultimate goals. Manners and sharing are emphasized as we introduce structure to their day through lots of creative play. Life lessons like taking turns and helping each other teaches respect and patience for one another.
CONVENIENCES: Healthy homemade meals and nutritious snacks are provided and we have wonderful fun growing our own vegetables in our garden seasonally. It's just amazing what a child will eat if they grow it themselves! Train service is within walking distance.
CURRENT OPENINGS: We have one full time opening and a three day opening at this time
HOURS OF OPERATION: 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
