Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center
The Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center serves infants from ages 6 months to young children up to 5 years old. Located on the Lower East Side, within a New York City Housing Authority building, the Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center works with a wide range of families and is a unique and innovative program. The Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center is one of the few centers in the community that has an infant center.
The Jacob Riis Early Childhood Center prepares children to succeed socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically through use of the Creative Curriculum, and all best practices included in NYS and City requirements for early childcare services. We serve nutritious meals that meet the dietary and nutritional guidelines, and the center is licensed by the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.
