Get to Know Me
and My Philosophy

Gabriela Barbosa de Araujo


Gabriela Thatcher

I am from Brazil and I have been working with kids since 2007. I am a preschool teacher in Brazil and I have 16 certificates in the field of education. In 2020 I opened Gaby’s Daycare which is just a beginning of my dream because when you do what you love, you go above and beyond to share that love.


In our bilingual school, we celebrate cultural diversity and language proficiency. Through engaging classes like circle time, gardening, culinary exploration, petting zoo visits, water days, music, yoga, sign language, field trip strolls, crafting, and book time, we are committed to developing affective, social, cognitive, motor, and language skills in both languages. Our mission is to create a nurturing and inclusive environment where bilingualism is embraced, fostering well-rounded growth and a love for learning in every child.
