Department of Education Child Care Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to our center! Our mission is to nurture an early love of learning in every child by providing engaging and developmental activities for all ages. The outdoor gardening boxes are the perfect place to dig in and learn about nature, and our rooftop playground provides plenty of space for socialization and unstructured downtime. Plus, our World at Their Fingertips program encourages your child’s creative and intellectual side through art, science, reading, and learning activities. Stop by for one of our parenting seminars and to meet our expert staff to learn more about all we have to offer.
