Alef-Bet Child Care Inc. (ABCC) was founded in 1987 by a group of parents, educators and members of the local Jewish community. It was designed to provide a Jewish option for early childhood education and day care for families in Cambridge, Somerville and neighboring towns. Our program blends Jewish and secular curriculum and flexible scheduling to address the child care needs of busy families. The center is located in historic Temple Beth Shalom, where the setting is comfortable and the spirit is warm and vibrant.
