Boston University Children’s Center

About Us

The Children's Center has been providing high-quality early education and care to families of the Boston University community since 1978. For over 40 years, our program was located near West Campus and consisted of one large family-style classroom of 33 children ages 2 through 5. In 2020, the center moved into a beautifully renovated historic home in the Cottage Farm neighborhood of Brookline and began serving children ages infant through entering Kindergarten.  We strive to create an early education environment that feels like an extension of the home for our families.  By working in partnership with our families, we are able to provide the highest quality education and care to the children enrolled in our program.  Click here to learn more about our Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Programs.
