East End House Receives Re-Accreditation

Congratulations to the East End House for receiving re-accreditation from both the Council of Accreditation (COA) as well as the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This endorsement recognizes that East End’s practices are in full alignment with best practices for the learning, health, and development of our youth.

East End House, one of Cambridge’s oldest social service centers, supports families and individuals of every age and ability with their inventive after school programs, helping our children learn just as much outside of the class room as in one!
Congratulations to everyone at East End House, and their partners at the Cambridge Public School District—you continue to make us proud every single day.
