Square One @ King Street

  • Springfield Day Nursery, has been providing early education and child care support to working families in Western Massachusetts for more than 124 years.
  • Today, we provide a wide range of services to children and families, but we remain grounded in our commitment to providing affordable, learning focused child care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers in a safe, stable and secure environment.
  • We are guided by research showing that children who begin learning early become better learners for life.
  • Kids who get off to a good start are better equipped to become successful and happy as adults.
  • They become more productive and more likely to make a positive contribution to their community.
  • Moreover, they become better equipped to provide expanded opportunities to their own children.
  • At Square One, our role is to help build the foundations for both better lives and a better community.
  • A private non profit organization, Square One receives funding from public agencies along with donations from private sector businesses and individuals, allowing us to provide education and care along with transportation, all at low costs to parents.
  • Additionally we are able to provide tuition assistance for some families.
