In response to the child care needs of Federal Government Employees, the Government Center Child care Corporation (GCCCC) opened in February 1978. It was one of the first Child care centers in a federal Government Building.
The GCCCC is a private, non-profit corporation that serves primarily the children of the Federal Government Employees and other downtown Boston workers. The purpose of the Center is to provide young children and their families with the best care and education possible.
The Government Center Child Care Center offers young children a safe, caring environment that stimulates them to learn about themselves and the world around them. Special attention is given to the belief that each child is a unique and special individual. Children are placed in small groups primarily by age to provide for individual attention. Each group offers youngsters exciting, developmentally appropriate experiences that promote social, emotional, physical and creative growth. Children are given opportunities to learn from a wide variety of "hands on" experiences based on each child's individual needs, interests, handicaps, and abilities. The program is staffed by supportive Teachers and Assistants with knowledge of child development and years of experience. Teachers facilitate learning as children play in the classrooms and outdoors. Daily activities vary with each age group but generally include small and larger motor activities, art, music, science, sand and water play, block play, stories, math and reading readiness activities.
