Toddler Arlington Childrens Center
About ACC

Arlington Children’s Center (ACC) was founded by a group of Arlington parents in 1971. Licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care, ACC is a private, non-profit child care center that strives to be a model for quality early childhood education.

ACC is housed in a former elementary school with spacious classrooms and a large outdoor playground. Both indoor and outdoor areas are well equipped and permit ample opportunity for fine and gross motor development. The space has been designed to create a setting that goes well beyond the provision of routine child care.

Useful School Information

School Closing Policy

Whenever Arlington Public Schools announce a delayed opening or closure due to inclement weather, ACC also will be delayed or closed. When the Arlington Public Schools are closed for two or more successive days due to the same weather event, ACC will make an independent decision after the first day and, at our discretion, may close, delay, or open.

You will receive email and/or text notification about a delay or closure through Blackboard Connect, our emergency notification system.
