Children's Corner at Newton-Wellesley Hospital
The Children's Corner is a non-profit childcare program, established in 1978, to provide quality care for the children of employees at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. We also offer care to local families in the community. The Center is conveniently located on the Hospital campus and is part of the Newton-Wellesley Hospital Corporation.
We provide enrichment programs for children between the ages of 12 months and 5 years. Daily programming is led by the director and supported by a well-trained and nurturing staff.
- Our team exercises and challenges the capacities of the child that are emerging at a given developmental stage.
- We encourage and help the child develop his or her pattern of interests, talents and goals.
- We present learning experiences when the child is developmentally best able to master and retain what they learn and relate it to past and future experiences.
Accreditation and Licensing
The Center is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care. We are also accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Our program is divided into different groupings: Cubs, Chipmunks, Bunnies, Kangaroos and Monkeys. The staff determines placement of individual children based upon individual need and chronological age. Each group has its own specific emphasis determined by age appropriate needs and expectations.
