Our Northside Center (located in the heart of the Northside neighborhood, near to St. Joseph's Hospital) provides a diverse early education learning environment designed for children five (5) years of age and younger.  The program is open to all children and focuses on developing early literacy, math and social skills and works to guide and nurture young children toward enrollment in a traditional kindergarten curriculum.  Children are provided breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack, as well as time to enjoy fun and fitness on our playground.

Staffed by NYS certified teachers and trained teacher assistants, our center is open year-round Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 5:00 p.m.  Flexible hours and rates are available for preschool-age children.  Referrals for financial assistance may also be available for qualifying families who need support to manage childcare costs.

Enrollment applications are available for Fall 2021.  To schedule a tour, please contact Tiffany Bennett, Northside Program Coordinator by email at tbennett@elmcrest.org.
