Teacher and kids are playing



In 1978, I was pursuing a graduate degree in Early Childhood Education from Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York. As part of my course work, I was student teaching in the Byram Hills School District and attending classes. I also had two young children at home. At that time, there was no full day program for preschoolers, so I decided to grow my own. As a Mom and an educator, I knew what I wanted for my children. I wanted a place where they would feel safe, comfortable, and secure. I wanted a place where they would be gently introduced to a stimulating, engaging and child centered program of activities in all areas of their development: emotional, social, physical and cognitive. And I wanted them to be with people who would "see" and honor them for their uniqueness, and respect their right to learn in their own style.

Childrenspace is that place. Created in l979, it remains the only full day, year-round, early childhood program exclusively for preschoolers in Croton. It is a program based on solid, time-honored developmental and educational principles. It is both a space "dedicated" to children, and a place where they can grow and flourish at their own pace. It is a magical place, a place full of wonder and laughter, where lasting peer relationships are made, and a love of learning is born.

Over the years, Childrenspace has become a local institution. We continue to provide a high quality program for families with children in Croton, Ossining, Briarcliff Manor, Yorktown, Cortlandt Manor, Montrose and Peekskill. Childrenspace is both community approved and licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Please contact us for more information about scheduling and tuition, or to arrange a visit. We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our very special school!
