Our Team

The Open Center employs nurturing teachers who understand the stages of childhood development, respect family needs, and promote cultural diversity. Our staff is dedicated to building strong partnerships with families to enrich children’s experiences.

The Open Center hires experienced and dedicated teachers from a variety of backgrounds that reflect the diversity of the families; many teachers are also bilingual. All teachers are certified by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and have attained advanced certificates (Child Development Associate – CDA) or college degrees in the field. In addition, staff is required to continue their professional development by attending college-level courses, early childhood workshops and in-service trainings each year. Teachers are additionally certified in CPR and first aid to ensure each child’s safety.
