Haste Street Child Development Center

This facility features six classrooms with ample outdoor play yards for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Because we serve children from infancy through preschool, children have a unique opportunity to experience a continuity of care for many years, which instills trust and confidence.

In 2014, three of our teachers were named to Habitot’s 2014 “Preschool Teachers Making a Difference” list.

Harold E. Jones Child Study Center
2425 Atherton Street

Founded in 1927, The Harold E. Jones Child Study Center is both a preschool and research facility for students of child development. Researchers have conducted ground-breaking studies in early childhood education here. In turn, our teachers are able to apply these best practices into the daily lives of the children.  

The current building was designed by the late award-winning architect, Joseph Esherick, and provides a fresh air, indoor/outdoor environment.
