The Rothschild Early Childhood Center (RECC) is a Reggio-inspired child care center, located in the beautiful Temple Adath Yeshurun facility. RECC opened in 1988 with an enrollment of five children; today, over 200 children attend. Our programs are designed for infants six weeks to five years old. School Age programs for children in Kindergarten through 12 years old are also offered.

The purpose of the Rothschild Early Childhood Center is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate program for all children. We are committed to providing stimulating educational care from qualified and nurturing teachers who promote each child’s emotional, physical, social, creative and intellectual development. We strive for excellence in childcare for the community.

To support that mission, we:

– Offer a wide range of experiences that foster learning, creativity and problem solving by incorporating language, mathematics, science, music, art, fine motor and gross motor skills into your child’s daily routine

-Encourage the child’s natural curiosity regarding the world around him/her

-Develop a sense of trust in peers and teachers

-Invite parents to participate in the process • Employ a well-qualified and caring staff

-Provide excellent childcare in a safe, happy, respectful, soothing and diverse learning environment

Rothschild Early Childhood Center is licensed through the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS). We follow New York State regulations for operation. We use The Creative Curriculum as a framework to our unique program. RECC was also selected to participate in the Quality Stars NY Rating System.
