Education for Children

Family Center

Accepting Applications for Fall 2021

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.

We offer a childcare program, special education services, and several grown-up and child playgroups. Our curriculum helps all children develop their early social, emotional, and cognitive skills by engaging with ideas, materials, and people.

This fall, Bank Street will reopen in person five days a week while following strong health and safety precautions outlined in our comprehensive reopening plan, allowing us to offer meaningful learning experiences to our students while protecting the wellbeing of our community.

If you would like to apply to our childcare program beginning September 2020, follow the link to apply below.
