Crispus Attucks             CHILDREN'S CENTER

Hot line for parents:

Because they contribute to the overall physical, cognitive, and emotionaldevelopment of children, nature-oriented playgrounds help children:

- score higher on tests for
  concentration and self discipline

- experience more diverse play

- exhibit less aggressive behavior

- strive toward advanced motor

Dear Parents & Visitors,

Welcome to Crispus Attucks Children’s Center…

In Dorchester, MA there is a green gate that surrounds 2 buildings and a unique play space for children.
A school that is filled with children’s laughter and learning, teachers signing and teaching and everything a child needs to learn. We call this place Crispus Attucks Children’s Center.

Our Center has cared for and educated thousands of children and supported thousands of parents for more than 40 years. It is a place where each child is seen as their own individual, where they are challenged to learn and celebrated for who they are. Our teams of educators take their responsibilities for these young scholars very seriously and develop and implement a well-rounded curriculum for our youngest students (infants) to our oldest preschooler.

In addition to the education that takes place in our classrooms, children have a gym in which to develop their physical bodies and learn skills about cooperation, team work and sportsmanship. In addition children have a “natural” playground outdoors which allows them to explore nature in a safe environment.

This special oasis for children is one where children are seen as unique, precious and unrepeatable. We welcome you to make an appointment to tour our school and see for yourselves what this special place has to offer our future leaders.

Welcome to Crispus Attucks Children’s Center!

Myra Oria
Executive Director
