Helen Owen Carey Child Development Center

Tel: (718)638-4100
Grades: NS-PK | 134 students
  • The Park Slope North Child Development Center (Helen Owen Carey Child Development Center) has been serving families since 1974. The program provides early education for children from ages 2 to 4. We believe children learn best when they are taught by qualified teachers in a welcoming and challenging learning environment. We use a play-based curriculum wherein children can learn through hands-on activities which give them opportunities to develop many skills.
  • Meals are prepared in our on-site kitchen. We have two on-site playgrounds and a children's garden. We have a very diverse population of families-- both socio-economically diverse as well as culturally diverse. This gives families and children opportunities to interact with people from many different backgrounds and lends a richness to our learning community.
