New Preschool Facility Opening in Waltham

The preschool will open in the Waltham Watch Factory.

A new childcare center will soon open on Elm Street.

ComunitiesUnited, Inc. plans to open its new “Waltham Creative Start” preschool on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 169 Elm St., according to a press release. The Watertown-based nonprofit previously operated a preschool at a city-owned building on Hall Street for 30 years, but recently struck a lease deal to move its services into the site. 

CUI officials will hold a grand opening ceremony at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday and give tours. The new 9,500 square feet facility features six new classrooms. 

CUI also operates early childhood centers in Watertown, Woburn, Arlington and Newton.

If you look at the google street view, it looks like an old industrial building, but yah, thats not the Watch Factory.

Hi commenters, Thanks for noticing this. The address/location was provided by CommunitiesUnited, hence why it appears here. We have reached out to them to clarify the location.

Yes, you are correct -- the original Waltham Watch Factory is on Crescent Street. Apparently there were many factory buildings in Waltham in the 1800s and 1900s, the largest of which is the structure on Crescent Street. The landlord at 169 Elm Street reports that his building was formerly the American Watch Factory.
