Ruggles/Gilday

Established in 1922, the Ruggles Street/Mission Hill Day Care center became the first educational pre-school in the nation. Fifty years later, the Gilday Center was established by the Boston Junior League, its purpose to serve abused and neglected children. In 1999, a brand new, state-of-the-art facility was constructed that brought together both centers under one roof. Named the Ruggles/Gilday center, this Roxbury facility currently serves as a “home-away-from-home” for over 120 infants, toddlers and preschool children who live in Mission Main.
