Guiding Principles for How We Teach

We hold ourselves to a higher standard at Magical Beginnings. Beyond classroom learning, we seek to enrich and nourish a child in every aspect of early development.

Our Philosophy

Every child is special. 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.

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.

Our staff provides a warm, nurturing environment. We encourage and provide workshops to promote professional development and ongoing education which allows us to offer a high-quality child-care center.

By working together as a team, collaborating among teachers and parents and directors, our children can learn and play as they grow through our programs

Great People.
Amazing Children.

Our History

Linda Hassapis opened the first Magical Beginnings center in Peabody in the summer of 2000 after operating a successful home daycare. Her goal was to combine the close knit feeling of a family daycare with the advantages of a center daycare. With the help and support of my family, friends and the surrounding community, as well as an amazing team of teachers, Magical Beginnings Inc. opened in July of 2000.

Many of the teachers who opened the school with Linda continue to work at the Peabody school today and the Magical Beginnings team has had the privilege of watching their families grow and see so many of their children graduate from our school.

Since opening in Peabdy, Magical Beginnings has continued to expand and now has 6 locations throughout the North Shore of Massachusetts. There are now two locations in Middleton, our Peabody location and additional facilities in Essex, South Hamilton and Wakefield.
