Longfellow Children’s Center
Between September and June, The Longfellow Children’s Center offers unique, ultra convenient childcare options for busy parents. Our programs are licensed by the Massachusetts Early Education and Care Department. Parents may contact the EEC for the program’s licensing history at (508)798-5180. Parents/ caregivers may reserve an hour or an entire day, as little as one time a month to several days per week, depending on your needs. The program is also designed to fulfill your child’s full-time preschool education, or infant/toddler daycare and educational needs. Our daycare programs are licensed by the Office for Child Care Services. Children participate in our fun and enriching infant, toddler and preschool programs while their parents work or enjoy some free time. Parents may “flex” their daycare schedule to meet their personal needs!
Classes for the Infant/Toddler Program (3 months – 2.9 years) include dance class, music and movement class, special activities, and indoor/outdoor free play.
Classes for the Preschool program (2.9 years – 6 years) include art with clay work and other media, sports and fitness classes, math, science, social studies, indoor/outdoor free play, cooking class, language and literacy classes, and dance.
The Longfellow Children’s Center is open on any day that school is in session, as well as teacher days. On most snow days we remain open as well, weather permitting.
After School Program
The Longfellow After School Program (ages kindergarten through middle school) on the Wayland/Sudbury line is currently accepting applications for the 2012-13 school year. Children from Sudbury, Wayland and Framingham schools in kindergarten through fifth grade are welcome. The cost includes transportation from school to our center. Children enjoy swimming and tennis at The Longfellow Club and The Zip Zone, as well as sports, games and outdoor play. Art and cooking classes are held at our own After School Center as well as homework help with certified teachers. We’ll help your student stay active and fit while enjoying a truly different “after school” experience! Call (508) 358-0710 for more information.
Parents must register their children in advance by filling out an information packet and providing medical forms. There is no registration fee, provided at least 10 hours of daycare are purchased–and once completed, children may attend the program as needed. A $25 fee for registration will be required if tuition is not purchased. Please give us a minimum of 24 hours to process your paperwork. Parents/caregivers register with the Children’s Center 24 hours in advance, and pay an hourly fee. We have a variety of classes offered at no extra charge. A schedule is available upon request. We also have an indoor and outdoor playground for year round active play.
Tuition is sold in ten hour increments purchased in advance. Reservations are accepted beginning and ending on the hour and half hour. Tuition is non-refundable, and may not be assigned to any other child, including siblings. Tuition may be used up to one year from the date of purchase. There are no credits or reimbursements for unused payments. Discounts are offered for multiple family members when payments are made simultaneously. Full family members of The Longfellow Club are also offered special pricing.
During the summer months of June through August, The Longfellow Children’s Center offer a variety of week long day camp activities for children ages 12 months to 14 years of age. Full day and half day camps are available as well as extended care options.
