"Beth, Krista, Faye, Angela, & Lisa nurtured my three girls over 9 years. They had fun, they learned, they made friends, they loved all of the teachers and they were extremely prepared for kindergarten. The staff at Majestic Harbor (formerly Woodland Place Country Day) made our lives easier and happier, with lots of love, caring & kindness from 1996-2005. We miss them!"

Our Mission

The mission of Majestic Harbor Children's Center is to teach through play, since play is the 'work' of each child. 

Our philosophy

Stacey Cook, owner of both Majestic Harbor Children's Centers, believes strongly that children learn through play, and this philosophy permeates both schools. As director of five pre-schools in North Carolina and Massachusetts previously, she became more and more convinced about how important this is to a child's development.

Through hands-on, age-appropriate activities, each child is encouraged to explore their surroundings and develop communication, interpersonal and collaborative skills. 

We encourage respect for all people as we celebrate different traditions and beliefs throughout the year. The children are also encouraged to respect each other, work together, share and interact through directed play

In order for children to succeed and grow both academically and socially, they must be in a place where they can be themselves; a warm, comfortable environment where they feel accepted and safe. A place filled with love and trust. A happy place. Those places are the Majestic Harbor Children's Centers in Gloucester and Rowley.


Majestic Harbor Children's Center shall not discriminate in providing service to children and their families on the basis of race, religious, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.
