Lamont-Doherty Child Development Center

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to our center! Every day, our team works to encourage your child’s growth and development with creative activities and learning-based play. Our World at Their Fingertips curriculum nurtures an interest in art, science, reading, and math. The outdoor composting station teaches responsible habits and fosters an interest in the environment, and the  garden is the perfect spot to dig in and explore Mother Nature. Plus, our expansive playgrounds have plenty of room for unstructured play and socialization. We are conveintently located near the Palisades Interstate Parkway with easy access to both the George Washington bridge and the Tapan Zee bridge.  Stop by for a tour and to meet our expert staff—we’d love to show you around.
