ACS Program

We offer free or affordable child care services through the full day EarlyLearn Program funded by New York City Department of Education. The program aims at meeting the child care needs of children aged 2 through 5 belonging to low-income families and families with working parents.

The primary goal of the program is to enhance the overall development of the children - namely, their social, emotional, cultural, intellectual, cognitive, and linguistic growth - so that they will grow up into "whole" persons. Therefore, the program aims at creating a nurturing environment and exploratory experiences for young children to facilitate their overall developmental growth, promoting early literacy and English language fluency, and establishing a healthy learning foundation to prepare children for school. Comprehensive child development and family services are also provided to children and their families.
