The Freedman Center as a Training Site
Observation Notice for Families

To Parents/Guardians of Children Participating in Freedman Center Programs:
The Freedman Center for Child and Family Development at The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology is a training site for students in our Child Studies Program.
For educational purposes only, some of the groups or classes at The Freedman Center will be observed by graduate students of MSPP as part of their study of child and family development. No individuals in the groups or classes will be identified by name in these observations and no research papers will be produced as a result of these observations.
When an observation is taking place, the graduate student observers will be introduced to the group or class before observing behind the observation window.


There are a limited number of children that can participate in Playtime. In order to allow access to as many people as possible, we have made admittance on a first-come, first-served basis. Once capacity has been reached for that day, we will place a sign on the door stating so. If this happens to you, please feel free to come the next week as we want everyone interested to be able to participate! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at or 617-332-3666 x1250.
