More than just child day care

Here at Isabella, we offer a multigenerational, multicultural program that adds life to every part of the Isabella Family. Children are part of the natural rhythm of daily life throughout our buildings on our northern Manhattan campus. Their laughter and singing can be heard in the halls, in the elevators and in our outdoor garden as they interact with people of all ages.

We begin with a first-rate child day care program...

Parents of infants, toddlers and preschoolers from three months through five years old may enroll their children at our child day care center. The center is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Our early childhood educational programs are designed to promote independence, self-confidence, self-esteem and individual decision-making, with activities including:

  • Group activities and rest periods
  • Storytelling, music and creative arts
  • Gardening, indoor and outdoor physical activities
  • Carefully supervised short walks to local playgrounds
  • Computer-based literacy program for children ages 2-5
  • Intergenerational programs

Naturally Occurring Interactions in a Shared Environment Everyday

Isabella’s Child Day Care Center has partnered with Isabella’s Therapeutic Recreation Department to pioneer a new concept in intergenerational programs. The result is an innovative, award-winning program, which succeeds in giving infants, toddlers and preschoolers through age 5 an intellectual and social head start in life while developing their language, physical, social and emotional skills.
