Smith College Center for Early Childhood Education

The Center for Early Childhood Education is located on the Fort Hill campus of Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. The center, commonly referred to as “Fort Hill,” offers full- and part-time early education and care for children from infancy through preschool, and is open to all children in the surrounding communities. The program provides exemplary early education and care for young children; offers a laboratory for research and fieldwork for college students and faculty; and supports the child care needs of families.

It is our vision that each child who comes through our door join a community of children, families and teachers engaged in the joy, work and wonder of childhood.
