Welcome to the Tufts Educational Day Care Center website.

You are about to embark on a journey to a place for families that is impassioned by two core wishes. First, we hope that every child leaves us as a courageous learner hungry for the risks of creating new knowledge and excited by the possibilities of the unfamiliar. And, we hope that all of our children leave us with a resolve to demand diversity in the people, places, and ideas that will define their lives. This mission is reflected in our population, is made real in our curriculum, and is embedded in every nook and cranny of our school. Enjoy your sojourn here at Tufts, and best wishes to you and the children you love.

The Tufts Educational Day Care Center is a NAEYC Accredited Early Childhood Program.
