About Us - History

The Center was founded in 1986 and was sponsored by the Office of Thrift Supervision ("OTS"). The Federal Home Loan Bank Board (OTS's predecessor agency) began Small Savers with the goal of providing a safe, happy environment centered on parental attention and high quality care. Employees of the Bank Board worked hard to make Small Savers a reality, sharing the belief that what is beneficial to working families benefits all. Today, the Center continues to serve the needs of the infants, toddlers, and preschoolers of CFPB parents, as well as those from neighboring federal agencies, international organizations and the wider community.
