About Us

Founded in 1971, The Children’s Center of the Upper Valley provides high quality childcare for working families in the Upper Valley. We care for children from six weeks of age until kindergarten from 6:30am-6pm Monday through Friday in a health-promoting, educationally stimulating and safe environment.

CCUV focuses on the cognitive, academic, social, emotional, behavioral and physical development of the children in our care. We provide all our children with nutritious meals – breakfast, lunch, and snacks – everyday. We are staffed with well-trained, caring childcare professionals, many of whom have been with CCUV for 10+ years.  CCUV is fortunate to have a dedicated Board of Directors composed of seasoned professionals with a wide range of expertise.
