Meet The Team
More than just daycare...
CHRISTINE, DIRECTOR - HAVEN MIDDLETOWN
Hi! My name is Christine and I am thrilled to be growing, learning and supporting the children, teachers and parents as the Director of Child Development at The Coggeshall Club and Haven Middletown! My everyday goal is to make sure the little ones feel loved and safe so they are comfortable exploring and learning, for the teachers to feel supported and joyful when coming into work, and for the families to feel worry free and at ease when dropping their little ones off with us.
I grew up in a home daycare here in Rhode Island where I immediately knew I wanted to work with children in some capacity. I have a degree in Elementary Education and General Science and have been lucky enough to teach in many different classrooms both in the US and abroad. I spent 2 years in a rural village in Namibia teaching middle school science and training elementary school teachers, 8 years in Colorado as a teacher and director at a child care center and then 2 years as an elementary literacy specialist and soccer coach in a small community in Saint Lucia before finding Coggeshall Club. I am excited to share all I have learned from my experiences with the Haven community!
In my free time I love doing anything outside with my dog Lulu! Going to the beach, hiking, reading, sports. I am up for anything when the sun is out! I will forever be a Boston/New England sports fan - even when we are not winning and enjoy traveling and experiencing new places.
I am so excited to be a part of the Coggeshall/Haven community and look forward to working with all the kiddos, teachers and families!
“At first we read about this and thought, that has to be too good to be true, but then we took a tour and saw the beauty and the thoughtfulness that has gone into every detail of this program and facility and we knew, it was the real thing. And now, as members - it is so much more than we could have imagined it would be.”
— MELISSA, MOTHER OF TWO TODDLERS
“Thank you so much for your support to our family. The biggest thing for us is being able to watch how you truly 'care' for our daughter. It has made a world of difference."
— ANNA, MEMBER SINCE 2019
“Everyone at the club has enriched our family's life in so many ways! We are beyond grateful for all that you do each day to create and run this amazing place that has truly become like a second home for us all. Thank you for all of your care, all of your love, all of your kindness and laughter, and all of your brilliant teaching and childcare! We are so very appreciative for the light you have added to our days."
— DAVE, FATHER OF TWO, MEMBER SINCE 2019
"The club has been a complete game-changer for our entire family! The past year in our house was totally fragmented and my husband and I were in constant triage mode, and now, and even after just a few short months of belonging to the club, we have experienced a complete and total sense of order. A calm has embraced our family! As a mom and an educator, I spend most of my time caring for others, and for the first time in decades, I feel there is a place that cares for me, and my family! I can work while watching my child play outside. I can exercise right in the same location, and more than anything else, I can be present and available to my family by the time we all arrive home. This beautiful space is so much more than just a workspace, or just childcare...it's a community, it's a network of support, it's a second home, it's the dream we all talk about over coffee, and now it's a reality."
— DEANNA, MOTHER OF TWO
“It's plain and simple. The Haven Collection of Clubs represents the future of work. Businesses have to have more to offer their employees if they want to stay relevant and grow. I wouldn't work anywhere that doesn't have access to this amazing network of clubs and support. Especially knowing that we want to start a family soon. It's a no brainer. Absolutely a tipping point in the job search."
“The club is incredible, the peace it has brought to our family is immeasurable and we cannot thank you enough. Looking forward to continuing to spend our time here."
— ERIN, MOTHER OF TWO, MEMBER SINCE 2019
“Being a member of the club is simply wonderful. Everyone who works there shows such care and has always had an amazing attitude with every interaction. We love the flexibility of scheduling that they allow, along with the small classroom sizes and quality of their childcare. Being able to use their workspaces and the gym are just cherries on the top! I can highly recommend the club to anyone interested."
— ISABEL, MEMBER SINCE 2020
“Love, love, love this place! So do our littles, thank you isn't enough to express the gratitude we have for how much your space is needed and adored!"
— JESS, MEMBER SINCE 2019
“The club is our lifesaver. As a first time mom I struggled to trust anyone else with my baby. The second I met Britt and the team, I knew I had found a place where I could rest assured every time I drop her off. From they day they opened, it has been seamless. As a couple with little family help, the club has been a haven of flexibility when it comes to last minute care and schedule changes. Its not just a daycare, its our tribe and our family. These are the people that talk us through our struggles as we navigate parenting, always offering informed compassionate advice. We couldn't imagine our daughter anywhere else and we are thrilled to know that with another baby on the way, we already have an amazing place we can trust."
— MEMBER SINCE 2019
“We toured the facility with our grandson and had a wonderful positive experience. Being a retired Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher I was very impressed with the cleanliness, organization and learning materials."
“Our daughter loves her friends and family at the club. What I value most about the club is their responsiveness. All communication is instantaneous through an app on my phone. Sometimes I even get answers after hours! As a bonus the business is owned and operated by a true home grown local. 5 Stars!"
— KEVIN, MEMBER SINCE 2019
“We love and appreciate the flexibility you have brought to our family & the love you all show for our son each day."
— LAHNA, MEMBER SINCE 2019
“I've had nannies and have done traditional daycare. We started with the club when they first opened. By far it's the best option I've found! Amazing community of caring people who genuinely care about not only the wellbeing of your child but as you as a parent."
— LETICIA, MEMBER SINCE 2019
Programs By Age

We are engaged in providing a nurturing environment to support the rapid development of our group of tiny human's minds + bodies. Our programming at this stage is focused on providing a continued sense of love and security for each child while also giving them the opportunities they thrive on to explore their brand new world.
*We also have ongoing programming for new parents with children under 6 weeks - these group sessions will allow you to get out of the house, socialize, ask any questions you may have and mainly feel the support of your community. Please email [email protected] for more information.

at this age we are focused on three key stages of growth, 0-3 months | 3-6 months | 6-12 months each child in our program will be offered activities + objects which fall within their growth stage.
