Our Story

Childrens Playhouse Daycare, Inc. was founded as a family-owned and operated business in 1993. Since then, it has grown and expanded to become the largest privately-owned, center-based childcare center in Everett, Massachusetts.

Marilyn and Anthony Ruberto first established Childrens Playhouse as a family daycare in their Hancock Street home in Everett, MA. From this modest beginning with just six children in their care, the Rubertos saw their family business grow and flourish with the children of their community.

In 2001 they moved to 46 Bucknam Street, converting Anthony’s mother’s house into an early childhood education center with eight classrooms and 87 children.

In 2007, the Rubertos responded to the growing community need for infant daycare by purchasing 92 Baldwin Ave., the property next door, and renovating it into an infant and toddler center with five classrooms and 41 children.

After many years of dedicated leadership, the Rubertos retired and turned management of Childrens Playhouse over to their daughters. Michelle Ruberto Diaz, Executive Director, oversees both locations and provides expert guidance and mentorship to her management team. With 21 years of experience in the company she is present on the property daily while conducting interviews, processing payroll, center design, and other operational responsibilities.

Jenny Ruberto, Director at 92 Baldwin Avenue, leads that center each day, providing support to families and educators. With over 15 years of experience, she brings a wealth of knowledge to her team and can support families and staff with the day-to-day needs of the business.

Childrens Playhouse Daycare, Inc. is renowned for its excellent program, commitment to children’s education, and a deep-seated belief in the importance of a supportive and stimulating early learning environment not only for parents and children, but for educators as well.

Michelle and Jenny are proud to continue their parents’ legacy, steering Childrens Playhouse into its next phase of quality early learning for the children of their community.
