From Our Website

In 1984, Howard Johnson's opened a daycare center to service the daycare needs of their employees and families in the community. In 1986, when Howard Johnson's moved out of Quincy, a group of parent volunteers took over the operation and management of the center and the Center was re-named Greater Quincy Child Care Center. GQCCC continues to operate today as a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors made up of parent volunteers and the Center's Executive Director. Our program enrolls children ages 8 weeks to 7 years including a Full-day Kindergarten.


Welcome to the Pre-Kindergarten Chipmunk Classroom at the Greater Quincy Child Care Center! The Pre-K age children thrive throughout the day with our "learn through play" philosophy. This hands-on type of experience allows the children to develop skills such as problem solving, self-awareness, independence, and so many more! The teachers are available during the child's arrival and pick-up time to speak briefly with the parents. We encourage phone calls between 1:30-3:00 p.m. during the children's rest time to have more in depth conversations.


Greater Quincy Child Care Center offers a warm, secure, nurturing environment for your infant throughout the day. We encourage our parents to come in and share ideas and activities, such as songs, books, toys, etc. We use a journal to keep parents informed about their child's day. Teachers record feeding, diapering and sleeping information. Parents can bring this journal home to read and update the staff on any relevant changes at home. The infant curriculum is based on meeting the individual needs of every child through individual and group experiences.
