My name is Linda Curtin and I am the owner and day care provider of Fresh Start Family Day Care. I opened Fresh Start Family Day Care in 1997 after moving to East Sandwich from Boston where I ran a day care in my home after the birth of my first child. Prior to having my first child, I attended Mass Bay Community College and worked as a Student teacher in a Preschool Program in Wellesley MA. After I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education, I started teaching as a Head Preschool Teacher in a Pre school / Day care Center in Norwood MA. While teaching preschool, I attended evening classes and completed the requirements to hold a Certificate in Day Care Supervision and Administration. I then became the director and supervisor of Kids Klub Day Care and Pre school.
During my Middle School and High School years I held many babysitting positions. I always knew that I wanted to teach children. My goal in life was to teach preschool until I had a home and family of my own and then open a family day care in my home. Here I am.... over twenty years later and I am still doing what I love. Teaching young children!
I am a mother of two teenage children. One of my children has learning disabilities, so I have some personal experience with teaching children with special needs.
When placing your child in my care I want you to feel confident that I will treat your child with the love and respect that you have for your own child. Socialization is a huge piece of a child's development. While in my care the children become social. They will learn to take turns, walk in a line, be respectful to others and learn to get along with other children. They will also enjoy such activities as circle time, storytime, songs, fingerplays, arts & crafts, freeplay and group play. Your child will also be exposed to letters, numbers, shapes and colors all while being in a safe, loving home environment.
