Early Learning Program Information

At the heart of our Early Childcare program is a desire to provide safe, educational, and supportive environment for a diverse group of children ages two months-five years. Each of our childcare centers is licensed and accredited.

Our professional staff, which includes many bilingual teachers, provides the highest quality care and learning activities for children at this crucial stage in their development.

Each year, our childcare program welcomes 140 culturally diverse children, including children from East Boston’s growing new immigrant, Latino population, African-American, Asian and European-American children. The program offers sliding-scale fees based on a family’s income level because we believe that quality childcare should be available to everyone regardless of income level.

The Social Center’s early childcare goals are: to provide a safe, stimulating and educational environment to children; to support and educate families; and to provide the highest-quality service to prepare culturally diverse families for life-long success.

the Social Centers provide transportation and nutritional meals for all of the children in our programs and work to develop the children’s social, emotional, cognitive and self-help skills. We also provide vision, hearing and dental screenings for all of our preschoolers.

All programs actively involve parents in their child’s progress and activities and offer parent and family support, including reading activities for the home, family and child counseling, parent training and frequent interactions with teachers. We stress the importance of understanding, respecting, and reflecting the cultures of all families that we serve.

The Social Centers’ Early Learning Centers provide children with a top quality early education that will put them on the path to success!
