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. 

Poppets curriculum is aligned with the Mass. Department of Education Preschool Learning Experiences and Early Childhood Program Standards.



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.  The child's development is promoted in areas including
  • communication & language
  • physical development
  • personal & social development
  • expressive art 
  • understanding the world around us
  • math & literacy
  • STEAM - Science, technology, engineering, art and math. 

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 reports & records for everyone in the program as a way to see achievements and have keepsakes of early years.

Contact Poppets at Lisa@PoppetsAndover.com or 978-409-9020.  We would love to arrange a personal tour for you and your family at our facility. Find us also on Facebook at Poppets early learners where you can visually see what our little Poppets get up to.
