Since its inception in the fall of 1978, the Children’s Center has strived to provide the Northeastern University 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.

Exhibiting the children’s work in an annual art show is a long standing Children’s Center tradition. The art show gives the NU community the opportunity to glimpse how children view themselves and their world. Art is crucial element in children’s development. It allows children to express their emotions and demonstrate their knowledge. Most importantly, the art show validates that the children’s hard work is to be respected and can be appreciated by an audience.
