Welcome To Our Shattuck
Child Care Center

Racial and Economic Diversity Coupled with Affordability and Quality will always be
our first priority.

While They Play
They Learn

The Shattuck  Child Care Center was founded in 1969.  Racial and economic diversity coupled with affordability and quality will always be our first priority. We were originally located on the grounds of the Shattuck Hospital in Jamaica Plain until 2017 when we relocated to our current space at the First Baptist Church,633 Centre St., Jamaica Plain. Frankly, we loved our original space and considered it our home. However, the State had plans to decommission the building and ultimately took it down.  Despite our best efforts, we could not change this outcome.

Explore, Excite & Inspire!
