About Us:

At the North End Children’s Center, our students discover their world in many exciting ways…through art, music, computers, games, group activities and one-on-one times with teachers.

There are weekly trips to the library and plenty of time at a local playground. Our staff, all trained in early childhood development, meets twice a month to discuss ways of continually improving our care.

As one of this country’s first childcare and early childhood education facilities, the North End Children’s Center has been caring for children since 1826!

Our staff has many years of experience. Our Director has been here since 1985; and the center has had a successful affiliation with the Action for Boston Community Development Foster Grandparent Program 1989.

All of our teachers have been here quite a while, too. In partnership with parents, we provide a warm and caring environment in which children learn to respect themselves and others and are encouraged to creatively explore their social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.

The North End Children's Center and its staff are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. We are part of the North End Waterfront Health, an affiliate of Massachusetts General Hospital.

Our parents and students have access to free lectures on important child health and development topics offered throughout the year.

There are presently openings for children 2 years 9 months to 6 years of age.
