A Bit About
Magical Beginnings

Our History and How We Started

Magical Beginnings began with a vision of family because there is no greater responsibility than watching after the loved ones of another. Because of that, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Beyond classroom learning, we seek to enrich and nourish a child in every aspect of early development.

Our goal is to blend together the close-knit feeling of a family daycare with the professional advantages of a center-based daycare. We have created a center where parents are not simply comfortable leaving their children, but they are encouraged to be involved in their child’s day.

At Magical Beginnings, we know that every child is unique. We are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We encourage children to explore and express their creativity to help strengthen their positive self-image. Here, play is an essential part of the learning process. Children will learn to interact with each other and learn to share, take turns and cooperate through play. Play and learning are inseparable companions.
