Located in Somerville, Massachusetts the Open Center for Children was founded in 1972 guided by the belief that children learn much of what they need to know through play. Our program provides an enriched play environment in a warm, nurturing atmosphere where children can feel good about themselves. We emphasize social, emotional and language development through a wide range of learning experiences.



No problem! We're offering tours starting in January.
