A student playing with a child at the Children's Center

Personalized tours are now available for the Children’s Center at Dean College. Parents of children ages 2.9 through 6 years old are encouraged to bring their child to explore the school and learn about our program. 

Applications are being accepted for 5-day morning, 2-day morning, and 3-day morning preschool programs. We are also very excited to be able to offer a 5-day afternoon Transitional Kindergarten program or a full-day option (8:30 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.) for 4-6-year-olds who will be moving into a kindergarten program the following year.

Innovative and progressive, the school is NAEYC accredited and well known in the community for an inspiring preschool experience. Dean Children’s Center is a lab school for ECE majors, with teachers-in-training alongside credentialed teachers. The center has a very professional and caring environment for children to learn through exploration. The school uses a developmental approach to education which reflects current research in child development and peer conflict resolution. 

Dean College Children’s Center is located at 144 School Street in Franklin, MA. For more information, visit www.dean.edu/childrenscenter or call 508-541-1598 to schedule a tour.
