We transferred to Hugs Plus when my older child was 2.9. Never did I imagine how happy I would be with a fresh start. We were incredibly blessed to be assigned Nicole for pre-school. Nicole will always hold a special place in our family’s heart because of her kind and compassionate personality. My daily interactions with all levels of staff are positive and encouraging. I have no reservations dropping both my children off every day. My children are still students at Hugs Plus during this pandemic. Hugs Plus has gone above and beyond not only to continue my children’s education but to keep them safe. Hugs Plus was concerned about the children and the effect that the pandemic would have on their education and structure. The curriculum at Hugs Plus is stellar. I feel my son is leaps and bounds ahead of other children due to Hugs Plus. The staff is incredibly creative in their learning style and knows how to see the world through children’s eyes. Hugs Plus takes a play based approach which is so important to children and their development. Hugs Plus has not only taken the most incredible care of my children but they have taught me about their development and to take a step back to enjoy every moment. I will be forever grateful to Hugs Plus and their staff for the care my children continue to receive.

"We have been so happy with the care and education our daughter Cameran has received at Hugs Plus! She started at 4 months old and the teachers and administrators could not have been more helpful with the difficult transition of leaving her and going back to work. I quickly felt at ease knowing she was so well taken care of by the knowledgeable and loving staff at Hugs Plus. From the beginning it was clear Cameran enjoyed going to school everyday! Now that she’s in the toddler classes, she is learning so much from the teachers and other students. I love reading her weekly curriculum and seeing the daily pictures of her playing and exploring. She comes home with new words and skills and amazes us everyday! Also, over the past year with COVID, I’ve observed that the staff all take the safety precautions very seriously and we are confident the children are as safe as can be, which has been extremely reassuring. We are now expecting baby #2 and will absolutely be enrolling him or her at Hugs Plus as well!"

"We have been with Hugs Plus since our son was 4 months old (he is almost 2 now!). I could not be happier with the teachers and staff who are caring and supportive of the children and parents. I love seeing how happy my son is with his teachers and seeing how much he has learned."
"My son has felt at home at Hugs Plus since he was 10 weeks old. He recently transitioned to Braintree I. Now, at almost 4 years old, Braintree I gives him both the independence he has been craving and the structure necessary to provide him with the tools he will need when he enters into the public school system. The teachers and administration genuinely care about each child's individual needs, and work with families to provide a solid foundation for learning success. In addition to educating my son, the Hugs Plus team has given my husband and I great insight into child development, interpreting our son's needs and navigating the ups and downs of parenthood."
"The staff and parents of Hugs Plus were supportive and friendly while I transitioned back to work. Although this was a difficult decision, I could not have chosen a better place for my child. The staff at Hugs Plus is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and loving. They have helped him grow and develop several skills. He is always smiling! As a working professional, it is a relief to return home from work and be able to spend time cuddling with my son knowing that he has already participated in sensorial activities, tummy time, and play. "
"Hugs Plus has been part of our extended family for 10 years. Both of our children have attended from 3 months through Pre-K. The staff helped guide us through infancy of our first child, held our hands as parents during the "terrible twos" and thoroughly prepared our kids for Kindergarten. Our children received a top notch education and had the freedom and encouragement to explore a wide variety of topics and interests throughout their early childhood. The Hugs Plus staff is professional, welcoming, encouraging is at the forefront of trending early education and is truly part of our family."
"We’ve been a Hugs Plus family since 2015, sending each of our girls starting when they were 4 months old. The care and learning is outstanding, the teachers truly care about the kids and their well-being. We are impressed with how early on the kids learn empathy and teamwork. They are also pros at teaching independence - helping kids to learn how to put on their coats/hats on and eat independently and how to problem solve! Our oldest is definitely ready for first grade thanks to her time at Hugs Plus."
