The Bank Street Family Center is an inclusive center that provides child-centered, developmentally appropriate, and culturally sensitive services and support for families of children age 6 months to 5 years. Rooted in a deep understanding that children learn best when they are actively engaged with ideas, materials, and people, our curriculum helps all children develop the early social, emotional, and cognitive skills essential to lifelong success. We offer a child care center, an approved Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) Evaluation Site, a Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) program, and an array of grown-up and child playgroups.

The Family Center still looks much like the program that started so many years ago—one that mirrors family life, is committed to building genuine parent-staff relationships, and is grounded in an understanding that each child must be valued as an individual. Over the years, the Family Center has greatly expanded its reach. It now serves as a year-round childcare center serving 60 children, a Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) program for children and families, a Preschool Evaluation site, and a provider of grown-up and child playgroups.
