Criterion Child Enrichment

Criterion Child Enrichment specializes in developmentally appropriate programs and services for young children and their families. Our mission seeks to support the early development and education of young children and their families. We believe in the strength of the family and its capacity to promote the health and development of children.

We offer community-based developmental enrichment groups, child care, early intervention and newborn home visiting programs.

We emphasize the professional development of staff and other community early childhood providers. Each year, our agency sponsors the Great Beginnings Conference for advanced early childhood professionals.

Founded in 1985, we have grown to be one of the largest providers of child and family development services in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Criterion Child Enrichment is a private non-profit corporation. We serve over 7,000 families each year with a staff of over 350 professionals at 15 locations throughout Massachusetts.


During the public health emergency, we are providing HIPAA-compliant telehealth home visits for our currently enrolled EI families, as well as parent groups, and even Zoom Room parent-child playgroups!  Telehealth is a perfect match for our parent-coaching model, and both families and staff have found this new way of working together to be fun, effective, and very engaging.


We are also able to conduct intake visits with newly referred families, complete an eligibility determination, and create Individualized Family Service Plans to begin EI services.  To make a referral, please complete our EI Referral Form.
