boston college children's center

BCCC is divided into three different classrooms.

Children are placed according to teacher assessment of the child's developmental level and not necessarily chronological age. Our blended age groups allow for varying rates of development and learning from peers. Children are usually able to make connections with others in their class. The age groupings are as follows:

Approx. Age

Room #

Group Name

Size

Adult/Child Ratio

2.9–3.5 years

Discovery Ducks

3.6–5.0 years

2

Explorers

14–15

1:8

3.6–5.0 years

Adventurers

1:8

Each group has a homeroom and two assigned teachers. BC Work-Study students, Early Childhood Education pre-practicum students, and other students are also available to each group to provide extra one-on-one interactions.

Campus School Visiting Program

BCCC has a visiting program with the Campus School, a school for children with severe and profound disabilities, located in Campion Hall. The children in the Pre-K rooms visit, and are visited by, the preschool groups from Campion, and the exposure for both groups is very rewarding. This mutually beneficial program helps the Center children overcome barriers they may have toward the disabled, and Campus School teachers notice positive effects for their children in attention span and efforts to respond to others.
