Daycare + Head Start

Daycare at Goddard Riverside image

Goddard Riverside offers comprehensive early childhood education programs for children ages two to five and a wide range of support for their families.

We offer four programs related to early childhood: one Head Start Center on West 95 Street and three Day Care Centers located on West 91 Street, West 84th Street, and West 83rd Street.

Daycare and Head Start programs imageEach center uses the Creative Curriculum as a foundation for classroom activities that promote intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth through hands-on exploration of science, nature and art. The shared curriculum fosters collaboration between our Day Care Centers and Head Start program. Children also benefit from Goddard Riverside’s partnerships with local museums, schools, and social service and health organizations.

Goddard Riverside acknowledges the parent as the most important influence on a child’s development. Our staff assists parents by providing information and referrals. Parents volunteer in the classrooms, serve on program committees, and attend workshops and participate in activities.
