“Fantastic! I am a grandmother that became familiar with Sunshine Childcare, during a difficult second pregnancy for my daughter. The administrator and staff are warm, caring and showed concern for my grandson, during this trying time. I was welcomed to events, drop off and pick up often with a warm hello, Meemo! I don’t think there is a better place for my grandsons, they know they are in a loving environment, and their learning experience has been tremendous.” – F. Thomas
Yal-Day-New Day Care Center
Yal-Day-New Day Care Center opened as an intimate early childhood program in the Young Israel of Brookline, where parents were heavily involved in all aspects of governance. A professionally trained early childhood Director was hired from its inception, as well as experienced and nurturing teachers. This arrangement provided a traditional daycare center but with a “family feel” and quality to it. To maintain that “family feel” of which makes us so unique, Yal-Day-New takes great pride in being a community.
Yal-Day-New has been located at Temple Bnai Moshe in Brighton. Yal-Day-New moved to Temple Bnai Moshe because of an unfortunate fire at the Young Israel of Brookline. They celebrate thirty-five years of excellence in early education, with the longest-running infancy program in the Brighton/Brookline/Newton area.

Reasonable prices and I checked almost every activity there and stayed very pleased. They even have yoga there, it’s not something you’d expect. Very pleasant people. Definitely would advise to anyone to let their kids get enrolled here.” – Alisha G.

During the past 8 years, Little Panda explores ways to help children understand and master the Chinese language according to children’s ages and their Chinese proficiency levels. We use different methods and approaches for children to learn Chinese, also we hold a variety of events and provide enrichment activities for children and parents. Since we constantly explore new ways and improve upon existing methods, Little Panda has become Boston’s Unique Mandarin Immersion childcare program.
