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.
