The Wellesley Community Children’s Center (WCCC) was founded in 1971 by a group of Wellesley residents who saw the need for quality childcare. They set a tone for commitment, involvement, and concern for children that continues today. Our goal remains to provide the best possible programs for children and families.

WCCC is a private, non-profit corporation, operated by a Board of Directors, administrative staff, and professional teaching staff.

WCCC’s Early Childhood Program purpose-built building was constructed in 1989 as a result of collaboration among Babson College, Wellesley College, and WCCC.  As a result of this collaboration, 2/3 of available slots are offered to employees and full time students of the colleges and 1/3 to community members from Massachusetts towns.

WCCC’s After School Programs are open to children enrolled in the Wellesley Public Schools and are located in all the schools except Hunnewell.
