Our Center is licensed by the State of New Jersey, Department of Children and Families. We are a part of the College of Education and work jointly with the faculty and staff of the College. We serve children ages 2.6 through kindergarten. We recognize that young children learn through active hands-on involvement and that learning is an ongoing process. Our teaching staff individualizes the program to encompass the individual developmental levels of children and recognizes that there are differences in children's learning styles.We look forward to sharing in the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development of your child. Partnerships with families are an important aspect of our program and we encourage your input and involvement in our program. Please check back for additional updates to our website.
