The key to outlining the best curriculum for your child is through offering age specific, customized programs.

An extra bonus…Perfectly Poppins comes to you!! Feel confident in knowing that your children are relaxed and safe in the environment that you have provided. Familiar surroundings provide a more comfortable environment for a child, which encourages them to embrace the fun and thoughtful activities we offer.

We Specialize in Offering a Play-Based, Thoughtful Learning Experience for Children.

Children are naturally motivated to play. Research shows play-based learning is successful by enhancing children’s academic and developmental learning outcomes by teaching them relevant skills. In a play-based program, children can explore, experiment, discover and problem solve in an imaginative hands on way. Our highly trained, skilled professionals encourage children’s learning through sensorial interactions that expand their thinking. Our approach strengthens the teacher, child, and parent relationship.

There is no limit to the fun that your child will have by enjoying the Perfectly Poppins experience. Don’t hesitate! Our team will ensure that your children have a “Poppin ” good time!

What People Are Saying…

Michelle Barbera
Owner of Perfectly Poppins

I believe Mrs. Michelle Barbera is an asset for any teaching faculty and I offer this letter of support with great confidence. Thank you.

Candace Barriteau Phaire, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Early Childhood/Childhood Education, The College of New Rochelle

Simply put, she is every parent’s dream when it comes to their child’s introduction to formal education. It goes beyond her
demeanor and skill with young children. You can tell in the first moments of meeting Mrs . Barbera that she is doing what she was born to do: educate, shape minds, and instill an excitement and love for learning in children.

Mrs. Barbera has superpowers. She knows instinctively how to get inside the mind of a little person, and how to help them cope and overcome challenges. She is an exceptional educator, using every opportunity as a learning experience.

Grace has been a blessing to our family.  She has helped our whole family find joy in education whether through a project she created with our daughter or a new game she learned to play while I was at work.  Grace as provided an amazing preschool program using an array of resources and has welcomed us all over to her home classroom. My daughter loves going to Grace’s and enjoys running around outside and looking for dolphins in the backyard. It is amazing to see how Grace can bring any subject to life so my child is learning even though she just thinks she is having a fun day with a babysitter!

Miss Grace is a kind and dependable sitter. The children all liked her and she made sure they were all clean, in bed and homework done! The house was picked up and dishes done. We highly recommend Miss Grace and appreciate how great she was with our children and her restaurant recommendations when we were visiting Kiawah!

I’ve met Grace through a common friend and felt comfortable joining her home-school group that she organized and led. We’ve been attending for roughly a year, during that time we established a good friendly relationship. I admire her education experience; ability to plan and execute the lesson plan precisely, while holding discipline; passion for new experiences for kids; restless spirit; and good personal skills. She gave me some valuable tips and tricks that I’m successfully applying in teaching my toddler.
