Life on Campus

Program Description

The program is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education, Care and serves 61 children. There is one classroom for toddlers (ages 15 months to 2 years 8 months), two preschool classrooms (ages 2 years 9 months to 4 years 3 months), and one pre-k classroom (ages 4 years 3 months to 6 years). Our staff /child ratio is 2:9 for toddlers and 2:16 for preschool and pre-k. Professional teaching staff is supplemented by students, interns, and volunteers from UMass Boston.

Although our primary commitment is to UMass Boston students, we also provide full-time or part-time care for children of faculty and staff as well as families in the community. We serve a nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack each day. Food is prepared and delivered by an outside caterer. Menus are posted monthly.
