Scalliwags Infant Toddler Childcare in Wellesley is a special learning center based on Washington Street (opposite Whole Foods) offering a unique childcare/day care program to children from the ages of 0 to 3 years.
Scalliwags provides exemplary education and care in a nurturing, home-like environment through a fun, creative, emergent/play-based curriculum, to promote the emotional, cognitive and physical well-being of each child, expertly created by the very best team in the childcare industry.
The Scalliwags team consists of teachers and support staff who have been carefully selected to create and deliver an excellent infant toddler childcare program. The staff are very experienced and highly qualified but not only that, they all have caring, fun-loving, happy-go-lucky personalities and want to deliver the very best experience to your child, every day.
The program that Scalliwags has created is modeled on care and kindness to others; it delivers a developmentally appropriate curriculum through stories, songs and play to ensure that your child learns, grows and flourishes in a safe, loving, inspiring environment. Scalliwags fosters independence and curiosity in your child to help build their confidence to build positive and appropriate relationships and explore the world through imaginative and sensory play which includes music and movement, yoga and nature, learning activities.
The Scalliwags Infant/Toddler Classrooms have been optimally designed to safely nuture your child's overall development. The classrooms have a warm, home-like and friendly atmosphere in order to facilitate a rich learning experience with the aim of encouraging your child to learn and grow at their own pace while they feel safe, comfortable and secure.
The physical, emotional and cognitive well-being of your child is very important to us. Your child will feel safe and secure to actively construct their own knowledge and experiences, every day. Children feel safe and thrive when their days have structure and routine and when the learning process for them is more organic it has more impact and meaning. The Scalliwags daily routine has been created with structure and routine in mind to enable your child to thrive but with room for flexibility to meet their changing needs within their classroom.
Above all, Scalliwags is committed to providing your child with a wonderful, enriching experience in a safe and happy environment.
Scalliwags does NOT require children to be toilet trained for enrollment in the program.
