Welcome to Galoop!
Cecilia Matson, M.A. offers the perfect developmental and Spanish class for your babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. In her class your child will find the environment he needs to learn, have fun, and fulfill his potential. Cecilia makes sure all of your child's developmental needs and strengths are met. Cecilia's warm and empathetic teaching style will make you and your child feel right at home. Everyone who has been in her class raves about her classroom environment: a relaxed, fun, engaging place where children, parents, and caregivers all learn and feel supported.
Cecilia has been working with families and their young children for the last 20 years (Tufts University, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Children's Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Brazelton Institute, Isis Parenting). Cecilia brings her expertise on parenting and child development to every class and you'll have the opportunity to chat and consult about topics such as eating, sleeping, behavior, discipline, potty training, and more.
