High Quality Early Learning & Child Care

About Us

Dracut Children's Center (DCC) was founded in September 1989 by Darlene Krickler. We began as a daycare facility, providing a safe and warm place for children, then expanded to include a nursery school which offered a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

Since then, we expanded and added a school age program. Our center currently offers child care and educational programs for children from 6 weeks old to 12 years old.

We are open Monday through Friday from 7AM to 6PM. Our programs offer a "home away from home" environment that is relaxing, friendly, and cheerful. The staff of Dracut Children's Center has over 50 years of combined experience in childcare. Our dedication and professional expertise are used to provide you with the highest quality of child care services.

The teaching and learning that happens in our classrooms will help children to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge they will need to become active productive citizens in their communities.

Providing a safe and secure child care environment is our No. 1 priority

  • Secure lobby. Our entrance to Dracut Children's Center is equipped with an electronic lock/keypad. All parents must know the PIN number to enter, while all visitors are required to ring the doorbell and are greeted at the door to be assisted
  • ​Visitor precautions. Photo identification is required from all unfamiliar visitors. A visitor listed as an authorized person to pick up a child must still show photo identification if the school director and/or staff do not know him/her
  • Equipment safety. Some of the many equipment precautions we take include securing all shelves and large equipment to the wall and regular monitoring of equipment to ensure it is in good working order
  • ​Background checks. Annually background check with DSS on all staff
  • ​CPR & First Aid. All staff is certified in CPR and First Aid
  • ​Fire drills. Scheduled every month
  • Attendance/roll call. Before and after all transitions

We are proud to be a licensed program with the State of Massachusetts (EEC) and having an impeccable record since we opened our doors in 1989.
