Welcome, Poppets and Parents!

Poppets* Early Learners is a safe, comfortable, stimulating and nurturing environment for children from 2 to 3 years old.  Located on Chestnut Street in the center of Andover - adjacent to town parks and other outdoor recreation - we are a Massachusetts state-certified early education home care facility. 

We believe young children benefit from learning through play whilst socializing with their peers.  Childcare shouldn't be just about filling time for the children.  We offer a range of experience filled with an educational value that will prepare children for a pre-school while at the same time, having lots of fun.

Poppets provide semi-structured daily lessons and engaging activities.  We offer nutritious snacks, encourage proper manners, and practice good hygiene.  We have amazing dedicated highly qualified staff.

Parents are the first and most important educators in a child's life.  We see our time with your children as a partnership to give them the best possible start in life.  Additionally, we know that parents like to be as much a part of child's development as possible, so we keep progress reports & records for everyone in the program as a way to see achievements and have keepsakes of early years.
