Helen Owen Carey Child Development Center
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.

With so much uncertainty in the world today and a pandemic further confounding our lives, it's reasonable for parents to want to protect their children whenever and wherever possible? But overprotecting or bubble-wrapping? Well, that's another matter.
Get Your Act Together!
We take a look at the other college admissions test and offer some resources for test preparation.
Why Small Class Sizes Work
You want your child to receive plenty of individual attention. That's one of the reasons most parents send their children to private school.
