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 not only a topic that children truly enjoy; it is a valuable medium through which children express themselves. Most importantly, the art show validates that the children’s hard work is to be respected and can be appreciated by an audience.
