SHOP SMALL // MiVillage, Holliston MA
Hi friends! I am so excited you are joining me for another SHOP SMALL blog post! Today I am sharing about MiVillage which is a children's enrichment center located right in Holliston, Massachusetts! MiVillage is located right across the street from the Robert Adams Middle School and is on the lower level of the Next Generation Martial Arts building. Philip Sargente started MiVillage 3 years ago when he wanted to create a warm and inviting environment for children to feel happy and encouraged to learn through exploration, movement and play. He wanted to create a center where kids are excited to come to and are ready to learn. Philip has over 15 years of experience working with children and families, so it made so much sense for him to open his own business focusing on developing children's mental growth and physical health!
I met up with Tyler Lawless, who is the program administrator and her sister, Tully, who also works at MiVillage! I visited on a day when they had a few of their members there for a typical day and it was really fun to capture photos of the kids enjoying their time at the center!
MiVillage has before and after-school programs, as well as full day remote learning students. They are also opening a new pre-school program this upcoming fall of 2021! For folks wanting structured activities for their children during the summer MiVillage also has a summer program! I am going to talk a little bit about the various programs that they offer.
For their before and after-school programs they will either escort the kiddos to/from school since it is right across the street! While at MiVillage they structure their day with lots of fun activities like story time, snack time, a unique daily activity, outdoor activity and free choice time!
MiVillage's pre-school program will offer half-day and full-day options with available early morning and/or extended day add ons! Parents can choose enrollment from 2-5 days a week. MiVillage also offers a 10% first year discount! During their pre-school program they will have structured activities such as:
Snack and Lunch Time
Stories throughout the day
Outside play/ Rail Trail Walks (weather permitting)
Learning Activities (Games, STEM activates, and arts and crafts designed to learn through play)
Centers/Choice Time (free time to do arts/crafts, Imaginary play, building, etc.)
Nap Time (Full day students only)
I hope you enjoy scrolling through these fun photos from my trip to MiVillage and if you are a parent or caregiver looking for an enriching program for your child(ren) you can check out more information on MiVillage's website! You can also follow them along on Instagram and Facebook!
