About Us

Imagine a place with the personalized, close-knit atmosphere of a family day care center and the resources of a large school community. The Fessenden Children’s Center, situated on the campus of The Fessenden School, offers the best of both worlds, enabling young learners to grow at their own pace with the help of guiding hands and nurturing hearts.

From infants to preschoolers, we know that each child is special and unique. We believe in an individualized approach to early education and we pride ourselves on the warm and nurturing relationships we have with children. We are equally proud of our close partnerships with families and the support we provide as they navigate these important early years of life. It is a privilege to be a part of your child’s ever-growing world.

Our co-educational center benefits from state-of-the-art facilities—resources such as a robust children’s library, gymnasiums, playing fields, and a even a chicken coop are integrated regularly into our program. Our world can be small and cozy or, with a hop, skip, and a jump, as big as our imaginations allow.

When I dropped Isobel off in the baby room, I always left knowing she was being loved and cared for by some pretty remarkable teachers.
