John F. Kennedy Family Service Center - Bunker Hill CC Site

Bunker Hill CC Site

The Kennedy Center @ BHCC began in 2012 to fill a need for private pay quality day care for ages 15 months to 5 years old. We provide quality affordable day care and summer programs for working families.

The Kennedy Center @ Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) is conveniently located at 250 New Rutherford Avenue in Charlestown. This site offers easy drop off and pick up and easy access from Community College Orange Line T-Stop.

The Kennedy Center @BHCC site has two toddler rooms serving a maximum of 18 toddlers and one preschool room serving 20 preschoolers. Toddler classrooms serve children ages 15 months to 2.9 years and the Preschool classes serves children 2.9 to 5 years if age. The hours of operation are 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday.

Our developmentally age appropriate educational services offer the right combination of instructive play and academic focus for each age group served. The Kennedy Center uses Creative Curriculum, a child centered educational program that is designed to offer growing young minds integrated math, science and social study themes, literacy instruction, predictable classroom routines, time tested instructional formats, and progressive skill training modules. TS Gold, the assessment tool used to track each child’s progress has a proven track record of providing reliable progress data that allows teachers to track each child’s developmental growth, share this critical information with parents and define progressive classroom activities that build on skills already learned. The Kennedy Center’s educational service design provides each child the opportunity to develop the skills needed to enter kindergarten fully prepared to succeed.

Some of the key growth areas addressed are:

Deductive Reasoning and Problem Solving
Team Work/Sharing and Working Independently
Positive Social Interactions and Effective Verbal Communication
Following Multistage Instructions and Task Completion

Listening Skills and Impulse Control

The Kennedy Center’s Parent Handbooks will provide more detailed information about the our early educational services and program policies and procedures.
