Harvard Yard Child Care Center is a non-profit, child care center and preschool, serving children from three months through five years of age, in Cambridge, MA. We are open to all families, regardless of race, religion, national origin, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability.
We believe in developing strong individual relationships, stressing respect for all children and their families. When Harvard Yard Child Care Center was founded in 1971, it was founded as a cooperative child care center. Today we are not fully cooperative, but ask parents to stay involved through weekly parent class times. Parents work with the professional staff in their child's classroom and are actively involved with many aspects of the center's organization.
The center is Harvard affiliated though not Harvard operated. We are located at 25 Francis Avenue in Harvard’s Vanserg building.
