John F. Kennedy Family Service Center - Toddler Childcare/Early Head Start

Toddler Childcare/Early Head Start

Effective May 1, 2018, All Kennedy Center Education programs are now located at our main offices located at 23A Moulton Street, Charlestown.

We will continue to offer 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 has two toddler rooms serving a maximum of 18 toddlers. Toddler classrooms serve children ages 15 months to 2.9 years. 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.
