Poughkeepsie Day Nursery is recognized as one of the oldest Early Learning Care and Educational Centers in the nation.  We provide a Creative Curriculum combined with an atmosphere of the 3 L's: Love, Learning and Laughter  to help our children develop into well adjusted, responsible and productive adults.

Our curriculum provides meaningful experiences in a safe and nurturing environment.  Each child is encouraged to do their best and to develop a love for learning.

Our philosophy at Poughkeepsie Day Nursery is that children learn through play, exploration and

discovery.  Our Pre-school and Pre-kindergarten curriculum is specifically designed to prepare our

children for their public school experiences.  It focuses on language development;  reading

readiness; math, science and emotional growth.

Hands -on activities and open-ended projects help stimulate the child's curiousity while building self-esteem.  Our interactive curriculum allows children the opportunity to develop hand/eye coordination and their fine motor skills.

Poughkeepsie Day Nursery believes that parents

are their children's primary teacher and we strive

to make the Nursery an extension of the children's home.  We work very well with parents, often times encouraging parent interaction throughout our program.  Communication between home and school is an essential ingredient and is accomplished by daily communication books.
