A Word From Our Founder

It was the delight and joy in raising my children that inspired me to start A Place To Grow in 1979. I have a solid foundation and background in Early Education and Child Care. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Wellesley College, a Master’s Degree from Lesley University and I was an adjunct faculty member at Simmons College for 10 years.

I believe that it is my own experience as a working mother of four daughters that has contributed the most to the philosophy of A Place To Grow – a parent partnership that offers working families flexible hours and schedules, supportive directors and family events and involvement. Our commitment to families is the foundation of our program and its success.

My family and I look forward to having you join A Place To Grow and together we can enjoy and celebrate your child’s unique childhood.
