The first of its kind in Massachusetts, Educare Springfield serves as a landmark early education school where young learners can reach their full potential.

Serving young children and their families with a full-day, year-round program, Educare Springfield is one of only 24 facilities of its kind across the United States and the first of its kind in the state of Massachusetts. Situated in one of Springfield’s most underserved areas, the building is designed to demonstrate what’s possible when children have equal access to high-quality early education. 

Formed in partnership with The Irene E. and George A. Davis Foundation, Holyoke Chicopee Springfield Head Start, Springfield College, Buffett Early Childhood Fund and Ounce of Prevention Fund, and designed by RDG, Educare Springfield serves as a best practice resource for the local early education, K-12 and higher education community.
