Children's Center

The Childrens Center

Since 1983, the Hostos Children’s Center has proudly served as a campus-based childcare provider who services the early childhood educational and developmental needs of children. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and we are licensed by the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).  

Our mission is to offer Hostos Community College students with access to a safe, nurturing, affordable, high quality, educational learning environment for their children. We truly serve student-parents by preparing children for school readiness,  as they pursue their higher education. The curriculum we use promotes social/emotional, physical and cognitive development to empower children to become lifelong learners. Additionally, we engage parents in ongoing activities and workshops to further support the holistic development of their child.
Hostos Children’s Center offers:
  • Toddler Program (children 2 – 3 years of age)
  • Preschool Program (children 3 – 4 years of age)

Hours available for Childcare:
Monday – Friday, 7:45 am – 5:00 pm

As long as you are an enrolled Hostos Community College student your child qualifies for our services!
