Lehman College Child Care Center

Children learning and playing at Lehman College's Child Care Center At the Lehman College Child Care Center, Imagine has provided child care services for children of Lehman College students, ages 2 – 9 years, for over 30 years. Located on a spacious historic campus, the natural landscape gives a country feel to an urban commuter campus. A new state of the art facility was opened in Fall 2013 with six classrooms, a parent study area, and a multipurpose room for gross motor play, after-school activities, and family gatherings and center celebrations. The new construction featured sustainable design elements including a lobby atrium with skylights, maximizing natural sunlight in the classrooms. An on-site natural playground features greenery and a garden space along with age-appropriate playground equipment.

The center focus is to help children learn, grow, and have fun, while fostering active parent involvement in all aspects of the children’s experiences here. What better place to encourage educational growth and development than on a college campus. The children may be the present and future learners of the Lehman community

The center includes a New York City Department of Education Pre-K For All classroom for four-year-olds, focusing instruction on Kindergarten preparation aligned with the New York State Common Core Learning Standards.
