About Us

Buds & Blossoms Early Education and Care Center is a program of the Asian American Civic Association, a non-profit organization that has been providing vital education and social services to immigrants and linguistic minorities in Greater Boston for nearly 50 years.

We provide high quality services to children and their families.  Our qualified and licensed teachers ensure your child has the best resources for growth and development.  Our beautifully appointed, new facility in the heart of Chinatown is a warm, friendly, nurturing environment for your child.  Licensed by the commonwealth of Massachusetts and inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, our Chinese Mandarin immersion program for infants, toddlers and preschoolers offers the best of combination of  play-based learning with language acquisition.

Buds & Blossoms Early Education and Care Center is working closely with the Early Childhood Education Department at the Graduate School of Education, Lesley University to provide professional development for our teachers, and to support our continued commitment to progressive educational theory, Reggio Emilia philosophy, and best practices for our children.
