Our unique location on the Harvard Business School campus gives us access to the space and facilities on the sprawling 40 acres of the Business School. The pristine campus serves as our “extended backyard” and provides safe surroundings that are the perfect place for daily walks and outdoor explorations.

We are located on the ground floors of Buildings 1 and 2 in the Soldiers Field Park apartment complex, which is on-campus housing at Harvard Business School. The front two sections are home to our infant and young toddler programs; the third section further back houses our older toddlers and preschool classes. Staff move easily and often among the buildings as needed.

Classrooms at SFPCC

Our bright, spacious, open classrooms provide a cozy atmosphere for children to learn and explore. The unique shapes of the classrooms feature low walls, an open floor plan and lots of natural light. Some classrooms even have windows between them to encourage observations and interactions between the classes. There are also two indoor play areas to supplement the motor curriculum and provide play space for inclement weather days.

Most classrooms have direct access to one of four outdoor playgrounds, each designed for various phases of motor development. In 2005, we upgraded our infant/toddler playground with the highest quality rubber floor padding and a new climbing structure. In 2006, we made a significant investment in the climbing structure on our largest playground used by our older toddlers and preschool children. In 2008, as part of an expansion project, a new infant playground was created.

We are also the only Harvard-affiliated Center to have its own kitchen facilities and cook on staff to provide hot lunch year-round to all of our children. Learn more about our Lunch Program.

To facilitate drop off and pick up, short-term visitor parking is provided in the portion of the Soldiers Field Park parking lot closest to the Center. There is also priority parking for Center families in the monthly parking side of the Harvard Business School lot.
