Who We Are

Founded in 1971, the Wellesley Community Children’s Center (WCCC), is a private, non-profit corporation operated by a board of directors, administrative staff, and professional teaching staff.  We provide infant, toddler, and preschool childcare through our Early Childhood Program and school-aged childcare through our After School Program.


What We Do

The primary mission of WCCC is to provide a developmentally appropriate and healthy environment for young children.  We have created two programs that support the social, emotional, and intellectual growth of each child.  Our teachers have training in early childhood and school-aged child development and respond to children with warmth, consistency, and understanding.



What We Believe

WCCC is not only a child-centered program; it is also family-centered.  We believe that children are best served when parents’ needs and concerns are understood and addressed.  Our goal is to provide the best possible care for children and, at the same time, to be a resource and support to families. We hope that parents know how important they are to the success of the program.  Working together, parents and teachers provide a solid foundation for children as they grow and change.
