About the Earl Center

The Earl Center is a bright, airy learning environment that supports the academic and professional experience of the Wheelock community and serves as a resource for current and future early childhood educators, social workers, and child life professionals within Wheelock and across Boston.   


The Earl Center is a workspace to explore, create, work, and play with materials and technologies used in working with children and families. It is a place to learn about and develop hands-on learning activities; to explore new educational materials and technologies; and to bring ideas.  For Wheelock students, it is a place to connect college coursework to field experience.  Workshops and continuous learning opportunities, open to all, are offered throughout the academic year on a variety of curriculum topics.

 The Earl Center offers exciting new technologies such as iPads, touchscreens, and collaborative technology workspaces.  It has a 3D printer as well as other technological resources for STEAM experimentation, coding, and gaming.  There are also low-tech tools like the laminator, book binding equipment, die-cutting, and both free and inexpensive craft materials. 

Our flexible meeting spaces and resources provide the optimal environment for creating, studying and socializing.
