Hello, my name is Dawn Gilliatt and I have been the Director of our Waltham location since January 2017. I have been in the childcare field since 1986 and I have worked in all classrooms; from Infants through Kindergarten. After being a Toddler teacher for 8 years, I began my administration Director position. I have operated several small centers along with opening large corporate centers and running facilities with up to 200 children. I am certified through Director II with the EEC in the State of Massachusetts.
I hold a degree in Early Childhood and a Degree in Business with a strong background in STEM. I thoroughly enjoy teaching early childhood educators through hands on workshops to develop their abilities in the field. My true passion is to continue working with children and families while coaching new and old staff in this field.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three young adult children, kayaking, hiking, camping and our family home in Cape Cod. I welcome all families to visit the Waltham location to learn more about our engaging programs and to meet our wonderful teachers! We have a very unique outdoor space that allows our children to get fresh air even on rainy days – I can’t wait to meet you!
