First Circle Framingham

about the center

First Circle Learning Center in Framingham is located in a historic homestead built in the early 1800s. Formerly named The Kiddie Lodge, it was a well-known program in the community for nearly 60 years until it was acquired by First Circle in early 2019. In the process of being completely renovated, First Circle Framingham features seven sunny classrooms serving infants through pre-kindergarten.
