Interested in Enrolling Your Child?
Enrollment is on a yearly basis, beginning in September. Our application process opens in the early part of each year. Offers for enrollment for the following September are made starting the previous February.
Although the vast majority of openings occur in September, applications are accepted continuously. If we do not have an opening, we will place your child’s name on a waiting list in case an opening becomes available at some time during the year.
The first step in enrolling is to schedule a tour to view our programs in action and to meet the Director or Assistant Director. After your tour, if you are interested in enrolling your child, fill out an application and submit a $35 application fee. Once you have submitted your application, we will contact you regarding available space.
Please call 978-263-2064 or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a tour.
ITC is open weekdays from 7:45am - 6:00pm and offers full- and part-time care for children from 3 months through 8 years of age.
What makes ITC Unique?
We learn a lot when topics interest us. Children are no different. For over 35 years, the Infant Toddler Children’s Center (ITC), a non-profit early childhood center, has been providing exemplary care and an exciting learning environment for children, aged three months to eight years. ITC’s curriculum is influenced by thinkers including Jean Piaget, Magda Gerber and the Reggio Emilia schools in Italy and provides a safe and supportive environment to foster children’s ability to take healthy risks academically and socially. Children guide the curriculum through expressed interests and questions, play choices, and approach to materials, based on the belief that we learn a lot about topics that interest us. Teachers are responsive care givers who know each child well, can stimulate new ideas, provide new experiences and support a child’s exploration. Teachers choose materials and plan activities that challenge children to wonder, use resources, try new strategies and express their thinking. The result? Inquisitive, exploratory, and inspired learners comfortable indoors and in the natural world.
ITC is located in a renovated and expanded farmhouse situated on 3.5 acres, allowing children daily interaction with nature and the outdoors while maintaining a safe, warm, and home-like atmosphere inside. Each of ITC's ten classrooms have direct access to an age appropriate dedicated outdoor playground as well. ITC services families from many Massachusetts towns, including, but not limited to, Acton, Concord, Maynard, Stow, Boxborough, Sudbury, Harvard, and Littleton.
ITC’s child-centered program is a well-established leader in the community and the field of early childhood education. ITC educators advocate beyond ITC, through discussion-based collaborations and presentations facilitated at local and national conferences, including an annual teacher conference hosted at ITC. Parents receive daily communication through personal interactions with teachers and class log stories, as well as scheduled parent-teacher conferences throughout the year.
ITC is also focused on community, providing numerous events for our families, including class potlucks, our annual art show, parent's nights out, and relevant speaker events.
The principle goal of education...should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things...men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers... ~ Jean Piaget
