Mayor Gary Christenson recently welcomed Little Love Bug Daycare and Learning Center to the Malden community. The school, located at 529 Eastern Avenue, is owned and operated by Rosemarie Raduazzo and her business partner Erin Traver. The opening culminates a life-long dream for Rosemarie who worked in the industry for 35 years at corporate based centers. Partner Erin Traver is a first-time mom who made a career change after observing the need for both convenient and quality day care.
They are very much looking forward to serving the community of Malden and surrounding towns. The Center is licensed to accommodate 45 children from four weeks to five years old, and their goal is to employ 12 educators. They are also working to create the perfect outdoor classroom so that children may gain as many hours of outdoor learning time as possible.
The school is very much focused on providing first responders with flexible arrangements that support their rotating schedules including the need to work overtime. Additionally, the offer the option of drop-in care to those who pre-register to be available to care for children in unforeseen circumstances. They also look forward to hosting special vacation/summer weeks for siblings to allow for families to save their personal and vacation time for family outings and vacations.
