Since its inception in the fall of 1978, the Children’s Center has strived to provide Northeastern University and its community with high quality child care. With a professional staff of educated and experienced teachers and help from college student assistants, the children gain valuable social skills and develop their intellectual and physical abilities through engaging, hands-on projects and activities. The Center fosters children’s natural love of learning. Art and music aren’t only activities that children enjoy; they are also valuable mediums through which children express themselves. Exhibiting the children’s work in an annual art show is a long standing Children’s Center tradition. Most importantly, this art show demonstrates that a child’s hard work is to be respected and can be appreciated by an audience. The art show gives the NU community the opportunity to glimpse at how children view themselves and their world.
