``ACA is a home away from home where children are cared for and taught by trained educators with big hearts filled with passion for what they do. Teaching is not just a job; not everybody can do it. Parents entrust us with their children, the most precious people in their lives and we take pride in helping them grow into responsible, caring, educated adults.``
``I like to teach children science, math, geography, and other subjects through cooking. It's fun for all ages, and I can find teaching moments throughout the process like counting crackers on the table, putting food coloring in milk, blowing bubbles while washing hands. Structure is important at this age. It provides comfort and knowing what to expect next.``
We are proud to say that ACA develops a strong community of parents, teachers, and children. At the core of our community is a group of dedicated teachers who have been employed by ACA on average by more than eight years. All staff members are trained and qualified in accordance with regulations of the Massachusetts Office for Child Care Services.
``My education is in teaching math. Math is more than counting and numbers. I teach young children to think and analyze, experiment, ask questions, and try to figure out solutions to problems by themselves. By building with blocks, doing patterns, putting together jigsaw puzzles, sorting buttons and counting bears, children learn math.``
``I am a nurturing person by nature. I love taking care of my family, my friends, and the children at ACA`` they may be little, but they are so full of energy and life. I love working with the children, whether I'm feeding them, cleaning them, or consoling them when they are sad. I also enjoy teaching them about my Indian traditions by reading books and singing songs in Gujrati, my native language.``
``I love watching children grow. Yesterday, they couldn't walk, but today, they're taking steps! Before, they couldn't pronounce a word correctly now, they can say a full sentence! It's always so exciting, and I am proud to be part of their accomplishments. I put so much effort into everything I do, from planning a curriculum to organizing activities, because the children's growth is my reward.``
``I was born in India but lived in Israel my adult life. Now I am American. It is very important to me to teach children social studies: about their families, school, our country, as well as different countries and cultures. We are all different but we adhere to certain social norms that lead to peaceful coexistence. So, knowledge of the world and cultures, and universal rules is the central part in my teaching.``
