About us

We are a family business that has been operating family child cares in our homes for over ten years. Tara Goitein has run her program for over 12 years. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and experience as a preschool teacher in a center. Leah Hanlon has run her program for over seven years and has an MBA as well as a degree in Early Childhood Education. 

We believe that children excel when they have providers they can trust and depend on. Communication is essential for your child and to keep you involved in their daily routine. We encourage learning through free play but also follow the Creative Curriculum, a state recommended curriculum. We offer the professionalism of a center with the personalization of a nanny. Your child will learn, grow, and play in a safe, comfortable space with well-qualified, experienced providers.
