At Educare, we believe everyone deserves a fair chance to achieve their dreams, and it starts by leveling the playing field from the day we’re born. As one of the nation’s most effective early childhood network of schools, we ensure young children from underserved communities have the best possible chance for success in life. Our approach extends beyond the classroom to help children, families and communities thrive.
There are 23 Educare schools located across 15 states and the District of Columbia, ranging from urban to suburban communities.

Educare Springfield will be the 25th Educare in the country, and the only one in Massachusetts. The school will be a landmark for best practices and an essential resource for the early education community for training future teachers, social workers, evaluation and research, and professional development. Educare Springfield will also pursue opportunities for partnerships and collaborations in the local community.
