The foundation of learning begins at Best Friends. We are committed to the excellence in the care and education of young children.
Founded in 1997, by Maria LaPorta, Best Friends is licensed through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Early Education and Care.
Our goal is to ensure all children enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed. Our programs encourage children to become enthusiastic learners. All of our staff show a deep love of children and a dedication to their welfare. Our teachers interact with the children by gently guiding and instructing them, answering their questions, and fostering their self-confidence. They encourage growth by encouraging learning and exploration of the world around them. Our teachers strive to make a difference in the life of each child and family by communicating in an open, positive and professional way.
Our program provides a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development, language and literacy skills of young children.
We encourage you to take a tour and visit our facilities.
The curriculum is based on our philosophy “Learning By Doing, Hands On Approach.” Children learn better when they are interacting, doing and trying things on their own. These activities engage the children so they can explore, experiment, imitate, ask questions and be questioned to further their thinking and problem solving skills. The main goal of our programs is to guide and encourage children to become enthusiastic learners; to help each child develop a positive self-image, to foster the development of self-confidence as an individual, to foster an awareness of others, and to encourage positive peer relationships.
Knowing the tremendous impact the early years have on a child, it is our goal to provide a supportive environment where we work together with the parents to make each child’s first five years a positive and beneficial experience.
All of our teachers are also involved in professional development and education. By keeping current with the latest educational programs and methods, our staff will ensure that the children receive the best possible experience while they are in our care.
