Our Mission
The Transportation Children’s Center (TCC) has been serving the needs of working parents and their children since 1986. Thanks to our safe, attractive facility and outstanding staff of childcare professionals, parents can have complete confidence that their children are getting the best possible care. Our role is to not only take care of children, but also to provide an environment in which they will attain the emotional, social, physical, and intellectual strengths they need to flourish in the world around them. As a parent, you can go to work knowing that here, children are safe and in a program designed to help them become happy, peaceful, giving adults with much to contribute to society.

NAEYC Accreditation 
TCC has been fully accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC #145048) since 1996, when we first underwent this rigorous accreditation process. Most recently, the Center was awarded reaccreditation effective December 2017 through December 2023. This comprehensive process of internal self-study is voluntary, and NAEYC’s standards reflect the latest research and best practice in early childhood education and development. The process also includes an external professional review to verify compliance with the criteria for high-quality early childhood programs. TCC has been found to be in substantial compliance with the requisite criteria.

Our Professional Staff
We carefully select our teachers for their strong backgrounds in early childhood education, their diverse experience working with young children, as well as their warm and caring natures. All of our teachers are certified by Massachusetts Early Education and Care (EEC), and hold an associate’s, bachelor’s, or master’s degree. Our staff is the fundamental resource that allows us to provide high-quality services to our children and families. We are proud of our ability to retain these dedicated, experienced teachers and administrators. At present, almost half of TCC’s staff has worked here for more than 10 years.
Thanks to their commitment to the field and to the Center, our children’s hearts and minds flourish. Additionally, student interns majoring in education at the college level bring fresh resources and ideas to our classrooms.
