In 1976, Joan Barnes—a Californian mom frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time—took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play & Music. In the decades since Gymboree’s founding, Joan’s vision of a safe place where youngsters could build confidence and creativity has come to fruition and spread to 30 countries around the globe. Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children’s’ cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon. The staffers also conduct entertaining classes that cover subjects ranging from music to sports, imparting valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. To further set apart her business, Barnes employed nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beck to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers.
As a stay-at-home mom of two daughters Michelle Dickinson spends lots of time chronicling their childhood from behind her camera. For Michelle Dickinson Photography, she channels that same motherly affection as she snaps pictures of newborns, toddlers, and older children sleeping and at play. Conducted outdoors or at her client's homes, Michelle's sessions also accommodate engaged couples and families. After their shoot, her subjects can keep their favorite images as digital proofs, custom cards, or prints and gallery-wrapped canvases up to 16"x20" in size.
Over the course of 25 years of dry cleaning, the staff at Boston Cleaners has developed an efficient cleaning regime dubbed The 13 Travels of Your Garment. The process begins with a warm welcome, during which the staff enters each item into a computer system before inspecting and sorting each piece. Then, cleaners apply one of 20 stain-removal detergents, clean garments with eco-friendly machines, and steam them to release wrinkles and cook any long-forgotten, pocketed dumplings. Garments are then given a hand finish, inspected one last time, and delivered to their owners in protective packaging.
