helping shape future generations

The Pillars Child Care offers a unique, award-winning and innovative educational program for infants 6 weeks to preschoolers of 5 years. Our intergenerational shared-site program provides opportunities for The Pillars of Prospect Park community members and the children in our child care to enjoy shared activities.

The Pillars’ goal is to provide a loving, caring, educational family-friendly child care center. We believe children should be exposed to new experiences and empowered to grow both mentally and physically. Our intergenerational programs provide opportunities to learn socialization and cultural awareness. Children learn patience and understanding in a diverse world.

Intergenerational Activities

Our intergenerational shared-site program is set apart from more traditional child care programs. The Pillars children and their “Grandfriends” bond over scheduled activities and informal encounters. They share stories, games, music, art, hugs and so much more. These shared activities increase empathy, understanding, purpose and engagement.

In our infant classroom, for babies 6 weeks to 18 months, we believe babies develop best on their own schedule. Our infant curriculum is designed to meet each infant’s individual needs. Our professional staff is well trained and dedicated to giving your baby a loving, nurturing environment. You’ll get daily communication about your child’s schedules, napping and well-being.
