Our Story & Mission

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.

WCCC’s mission is to foster joy, curiosity, and empathy in every student by applying a hands-on, child-inspired curriculum. Our dedicated teaching professionals implement an intentional, play-based program where social-emotional development builds the foundation for lifelong learning in a culturally responsive way.
