Welcome To Magical Beginnings

Planting The Seed For Their Dreams To Grow

Success Stories

My daughter has been going to MB since she was 4 months old and the teachers quickly became a second family, loving Grace like their own. We are about to welcome our second daughter and I have extra comfort this time going back to work knowing she'll be in the care of such wonderful friends. The education and socialization MB has provided our 2 year old with has been more than I ever imagined. Our family loves MB!

Our family has had an amazing experience with Magical Beginnings. We have two children that attend full time who are thriving in their classrooms (one preschool and one toddler). Both children started in the infant room and we became so close with the teachers, that we still check in from time to time to see how they're doing. The toddler teachers are amazing; helping us teach our children to be polite and compassionate, and helping them learn numbers and letters. The preschool teachers helped our child to become excited over learning how to write her name and different words. Our daughter is always excited to play outside with her friends twice a day at school. Being full time working parents, we are thrilled that both of our children play outside twice a day with friends, toys and a jungle gym.  We wanted a structured program, as we feel that children are at their best with a schedule. Magical Beginnings has a wonderful schedule that keeps the children in a routine, but always doing something fun. This year the school hosted an Art Night and set up the classrooms as art galleries. I loved seeing everything the children have been working on. The teachers put their heart and soul into each of their children and we will forever be thankful for what they've done for our family!
Thanks!

Our oldest son graduated from Magical Beginnings preschool program last year, and our youngest son is graduating this year. We are very impressed with everything that MB has to offer from a pre-k program which gets the children ready for kindergarten to all of the fun social events for the kids and for the families including holiday concerts and parties, graduation, special guests like the bubble making man, mystery readers & authors. We also love going to the Parent Conference night to hear about the progress that our son is making. More importantly, both of our sons are happy to go to preschool everyday to see their friends, play outside in the playground, or in the motor room on the rainy days, and to see the smiling faces of their teachers. The teachers are so kind, patient, energetic, and encouraging to all of the children. We are so happy that our sons had the opportunity to attend Magical Beginnings!

Our children have been attending Magical Beginnings for just under a year now. We had recently moved and were attending the daycare near our old home for a while. When we were ready to make the move to a new center we started looking our options. I came across Magical Beginnings and set up a time with Erin to come in and tour the school. I fell in love with the school in just a few short minutes and upon leaving signed both children up because I knew that that's where I wanted them to go. In no time at all I realized that it was the right choice as thy have so much love and support. We feel that our children are taken care of as if they were their own by the staff members. I recommend Magical Beginnings to everyone I know! We are very happy with the center and I'm glad we made the move.

Thought I'd share some thoughts on why I love OUR school... From the first day we dropped my oldest child, an infant then, off at Magical Beginnings I felt it. It was indescribable then, as a new mom bringing her child to daycare for the first time. Now, I can tell you that feeling is very simply a familiar one. The staff at Magical Beginnings treat our children as members of their extended family. They hug them... make them laugh... comfort them...teach them... When we can't be with our children, it gives us great peace to know that they are being cared for the way we would care for them. Our children love their teachers and we speak of them often at home- like they are members of OUR extended family. I will cherish these relationships and years at Magical Beginnings. Without you, being a first time mom (and then a mom of two) would have most definitely been a very different experience.

My husband and I love Magical Beginnings. We consider them our extended family. Both our daughters go to the Wakefield location. The facility is always clean and warming! The teachers and office staff are AMAZING! They are always so helpful, welcoming and caring. Our oldest daughter who is now 3 years old was born 5 weeks early and had bowel surgery when she was 10 days old. It was difficult going back to work and trusting anyone to care for her but her teachers at the time she was an infant in the Funky Monkey room made my transition back to work much easier because I was confident she was in great hands! We owe the success of our daughter meeting all her milestones (crawling, walking, talking on time) despite being born a preemie to her wonderful teachers in the Funky Monkey room, Hungry Hippos and Leaping Leopards. We are thrilled that our youngest daughter is currently in the Funky Monkey room and are very thankful that Magical Beginnings works hard to keep the parents with the teachers they already know so well. Thank you for all you do for our children!

What stands out about Magical Beginnings is the staff and how deeply they care about the kids. Just the other day, our daughter went on about how much she loves her classroom teachers. And she will still run to her former teachers and to other support staff for hugs, because at Magical Beginnings, it truly is a team effort. As parents, it is comforting to know that everyone at the facility is invested in your child’s safety, learning and growth. They make every effort to engage families in the education and development process, and ensure kids and parents alike are part of the Magical Beginnings community." -

We have been a Magical Beginnings family since November 2013. The classroom teachers are what make this place so special. The care, compassion and love they have for the kids makes it easier to be away each day. We have been lucky to have teachers with great energy and positive attitudes and our two daughters have thrived!

We have had the opportunity to be a part of the Magical Beginnings family for the past 6 years. That is what is amazing about this place is that you truly feel like a big family. I also view this as a place of learning versus just a daycare. My daughter is in the 1st grade and I cannot even begin to explain the advantage she had when she started school. She was so well adjusted that her transition to K was much easier than expected. I love that the teachers are focused on learning and having fun. Our children are only small for a short period of time. We love PJ day, sports day and all of the parties! It is so reassuring to have my children have the opportunity to be happy, extremely well cared for and having fun.

Working in early intervention, one can say I have had my fair share of experience in daycares. I was always nervous when thinking of where I would feel most comfortable sending my child. From the very first visit at Magical Beginnings I felt at ease and comfortable in knowing I had found a daycare that would meet my needs as a parent and especially my son's needs. The center is immaculate and run professionally. Aside from that, most importantly, the staff there is amazing! My son is always learning and is excited to go to "school." I can not say enough wonderful things about the teachers and how they all take the time to engage with all the kids and really get to know them. I'm happy with began the journey with this center almost a year ago!

Hi Miss Sarah and Miss Erin!!

Thought I'd share some thoughts on why I love OUR school...From the first day we dropped my oldest child, an infant then, off at Magical Beginnings I felt it. It was indescribable then, as a new mom bringing her child to daycare for the first time. Now, I can tell you that feeling is very simply a familiar one.

I will cherish these relationships and years at Magical Beginnings. Without you, being a first time mom (and then a mom of two) would have most definitely been a very different experience. "My oldest daughter started at Magical Beginnings in the preschool when she was three – they have watched her and her two younger sisters grow over the 8 years that we have been coming to the school. The love and attention that they provide to all the children whom attend is remarkable. Now as I transition my third daughter to kindergarten, I am confident that her transition will be a smooth one and I believe Magical Beginnings played a special role in making that happen!"

"Being able to bring both my chidren to Magical Beginnings with me made coming to work extra special. The teachers became an extended family to us and we have memories that will last a lifetime." 

– Miss Courtney 

 

"Our daughter has been at Magical Beginnings for just over a year and she's learned so much already. It seems every week she shows us new things she learned — even sign language! The teachers are great and everyone is so friendly — we are enjoying our Magical Beginnings experience so much!"

– Beth B, Peabody

"I'm such a huge fan of Magical Beginnings Academy! My son has been there since three months old and has thrived. I love the structured, clean environment they have created yet welcoming with a small town feel. I've watched my son's vocabulary, social skills and most importantly pride and confidence in himself grow throughout the years. The caring teachers absolutely make the school, they can be described as warm, helpful and always so fun and full of personality. I am a local hygienist and when my patients ask where my son goes to school I am always so happy to refer them. As graduation soon approaches, I am certain kindergarten will be a huge success and a smooth transition due to his beginning years at Magical Beginnings Academy, although bitter sweet to say good bye. Thanks for all you have done!"
