Meet Your Teacher:

Miss Xan!

Picture of teacher

Hi! I'm Miss Xan and for as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to open my own early learning program.

I started out by opening a family childcare so I could stay home with my then 2.5 year old daughter. After a few years I joined forces with Head Start and opened the very first Head Start Family Childcare Home in Fitchburg, where I taught preschool classes. I have been in the early education field for 29 years! I have an associate and a bachelor's degree both in Early Childhood Education.

Now, I get to teach YOUR child! I can't wait!

Top 10 Reasons You'll Love Us

Check Out Our Premier Program!

#1: We’re a Family!

We want to get to know your family, so please invite your whole family to attend our free fun family events all year long! You are always welcome to volunteer in our classroom and/or at any of our events.

#2: We Care About You!

Our friendly manner of open communication helps you feel wanted, needed, and appreciated. Our warm, home-like atmosphere sets the standard for how you’ll feel treated as we quickly address your questions and concerns. We can't wait to get to know you better at your first tour!

#3: Your Child will Make Close Friends!

Our small classes allows your child to be comfortable and grow valuable friendships with the other children and teacher. Because conflict-resolution skills are super vital to learn at this age, we help your child work through their problems with other children. Pretty soon they’re using the same strategies and words we’ve taught them, all by themselves!

#4: Your child will be more than ready for Kinder!

Your child will receive individualized instruction through our thorough assessments and curriculum. Our teachers will guide your child in the areas they need to improve, and challenge them when they’re ready for more. Our balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities follows the NAEYC guidelines to strengthen your whole child’s development: Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical.

#5: We keep your child healthy & safe!

Teaching children is a huge responsibility, and we take that responsibility seriously! Not only are we state licensed and CPR/1st Aid Certified, but our distinct policies and procedures regarding health and safety help to keep your child in a safe, clean environment. We’re constantly cleaning, washing hands, and monitoring all activities to prevent any accidents.

#6: Your child will love our childcare!

I'll help your child come out of his/her shell, gain self confidence, and grow in all areas of development. I'm excited to help your child grow and learn!

#7: All of our events are free!

To extend our learning we hold several fun events each year, and you get to join your child on them. We’ll celebrate special occasions with parties for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and your child’s birthday!

#8: Your child gets a shirt and portfolio!

Each year, your child will receive a different t-shirt for that school year to wear on Spirit Days. Some of our families have been with us so long they are t-shirt collectors! We also save some of your child’s artwork for a special portfolio you get at graduation.

#9: We help you preserve memories!

We offer you the opportunity to enrich your childcare experience by enjoying book orders, school pictures, class pictures, graduation pictures, cap ‘n gown pictures, and an end-of-the-year class photo memory book.

#10: We celebrate with graduation!

Bring your entire family to our yearly graduation where we celebrate your child's accomplishments in a big way! It'll be an event to remember! Your child will graduate every year, so be sure to bring your entire family for a fun family experience for free!

When should I call to register my child?

It’s never too early to call, so call as soon as you even think about registering, because our classes fill up ridiculously fast!

When can my child start?

Your child will be able to start care as soon as all the enrollment steps are complete. 1) call for a tour. 2) take your tour, register your child and pay the registration fee. 3) fill out the enrollment packet. 4) Provide a copy of your child's most recent physical. 5) pay your first week's tuition. Then your child will be able to attend our program. Please call us to see if we have any spots available.

How old does my child need to be to attend?

Currently we are only offering care for 3–5-year-olds. As demand increases for our program, we will add infant (6 weeks), and toddler classes.

Does my child have to be potty trained?

Obviously, infants and toddlers will not be potty trained. We do prefer that children ages 3 and up at least be in the final stages of potty training.   If needed, we have a “How To Potty Train” your child handout we can give you.  It’s helped many moms quickly potty train their kids.  We’re here to help!

What is your teaching philosophy?

We follow a philosophy where we work with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills. Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals. We also incorporate a play-based curriculum to enhance our program. Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for kindergarten! 

Are there additional fees during the year?

No.  Your registration fee covers all your child’s supplies and reserves a spot in our program.  Your child won’t pay anything to attend our field trips and activities. And your family can come for free too! Your child will also receive at no extra cost: a preschool shirt to wear on Spirit Day and a graduation portfolio!

What if my child has food restrictions?

No worries.  Several of our students have food intolerances or severe allergies.  We will make arrangements with the parents to substitute any food concerns. We will create nut-free classrooms any time a child’s allergy is severe enough to require an epi pen.

Is the registration fee refundable?


How many students do you have per class?

We have the smallest class sizes in town so your child gets lots of 1-on-1 time. We currently only have 6 students per class.

Nikki B.

We are so happy to have our son attending preschool with Mrs. Xan at ELA. She is so dedicated to the kids and the activities and learning curriculum is wonderful. My son often comes home and talks about all the fun things he did and the things he learned and is so excited to tell us! We love the work that she is putting in with him and helping him adjust to preschool and interacting with other kids. He is eager to get up every morning and go eat Mrs. Xan’s food (which he says is so delicious) and looks forward to his day. Xan has been amazing for him.

ELA has been a great transition for my daughter! I wanted her to have the preschool experience before starting kindergarten in another year, the small class setting, and the curriculum has been great and she is excited to go to school every day to see her friends and Ms. Xan!


Tina Marie

"My granddaughter is the first student signed up. If you are looking for a preschool, look no further. Xan is very experienced and loving. She offers children a nurturing, safe environment while educating them. I couldn't be more excited that my granddaughter will be part of her first class." - Tina Marie
