Childcare (The Baruch College Early Learning Center)

Last updated on 1/26/2007

This facility is available to students and their children.

The Early Learning Center provides licensed on-site child care for children 2 to 5 years old. The Center can accommodate approximately 45 student families. Its population reflects the rich diversity of Baruch. The philosophy and the curriculum of the program emphasize an atmosphere of exploration and recognizes the primary importance of relationships between children and the adults who care for them.

The Early Learning Center offers child care from 8:30 am to 5:45 pm. It is not a drop-off service. Children need to be in school by 9:30 am and must attend at least 3 hours. The Center offers a structured yet child-centered program for children while their parents attend classes, engage in club activities, work, and study. Children bring their own lunch and the Center provides a snack in the morning and afternoon. A nominal fee is charged for this program.
