At Little Folks School, learning happens all the time, falling into one of two categories: structured or organic. Preschoolers (between ages 3 and 4) and pre-kindergarteners (between ages 4 and 5) spend their mornings immersed in storytelling, playtime, and learning basic reading and writing, which naturally fosters social learning. They'll form new friendships and work to solve conflicts with peers in a way that will augment their new academic skills once they start kindergarten.
When The Original Chimney Sweep first opened in 1976, founder Dennis Arseneau could be found gracing rooftops and sweeping away soot while dressed to the nines in a top hat and tails. Today, he's retired the Dick Van Dyke number and lets his service record speak for itself. Over the course of 30 years, the Arseneau family has reaped more than 56,000 loyal customers across southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island thanks to Dennis's detail-oriented approach to service, which includes offering free estimates and keeping homes free of sootprints. Beyond inspecting flues of all shapes and sizes, his team can inspect and clean dryer vents, oil- and gas-burning appliances, and carbon monoxide detectors, and even offers a selection of fireplace accessories, such as screens, grates, and kindling made from handwritten love letters.
During shoots at Portrait Simple—a studio specialized in child, infant, maternity, and family portraits—skilled photographers snap an unlimited number of poses in front of a choice of backgrounds and provide the convenience of instant printing. Sessions can take any size group, accommodating families and close-knit juries. Models don simple duds without heavy patterns or logos and can tote props such as sports equipment or special blankies. After striking jubilant, winsome, or wrathful poses, guests sit down with the photographer to select images to turn into prints.
For more than 30 years, Unilock has furnished and landscaped outdoor living spaces with a variety of paving stones, used for retaining walls, seats, steps, and fire pits. Increase romantic patio vibes with the flickering light of a 60"x16" round outdoor fire pit, or a 43"x43"x16" square outdoor fire pit. Customers have a choice of three colors (tan, gray, and brown-gray) for the round pit or one color for the square pit, and both come equipped with all the necessary components, including the blocks, fire ring, and primitive bow drill needed to start a fire. Groupon holders can install the kit themselves using the company's instructions, or opt to have the fire pit professionally installed for an additional fee (installation fees vary according to travel distance, location, and foundation). All Unilock fire pits come with a lifetime guarantee on the structural integrity of materials used in construction.
