New Rochelle Day Nursery
Celebrates 120 Years
When the New Rochelle Day Nursery opened it’s doors in 1895, there we about 10,000 people living here-it was still a village and town of New Rochelle.
The booming summer resorts and grand estates in New Rochelle provided employment opportunities for great numbers of women and immigrants from abroad and Americans from South, many of whom had children but had no one to care for the during workings hours. As a result, The New Rochelle Day Nursery was created by 15 women who were living in those grand estates to care for their children. It’s mission was clear and simple. “TO PROVIDE A HAVEN FOR SMALL CHILDREN WHOSE MOTHERS FOUND IT NECESSARY TO WORK OUTSIDE THEIR HOMES”. These are the words that appeared on the permit (Number One) issued by the New York Board of Charities in 1895. These 15 women became the pioneers in the childcare movement, providing quality childcare for the children of working women and the tradition has continued.
We fully understand the importance of Early childhood educations for all children and “WE NEED YOUR HELP”!

I highly recommend this learning institution; my son was accepted into New Rochelle’s CILA magnet program, and will attend, but gained all the necessary building blocks at NRDN. The staff is warm and very supportive….the environment is conducive for academic and social growth.
This was my son’s nursery – he’s 21 now – and to be able to now have my grandson there is such a blessing. They are wonderful!!
NRDN is a place to be. Every nice atmosphere for the kids. Sent all 3 of my children there. It was a pleasure.
I feel like I am leaving son with family.
I didn’t believe it until I sent my 4 year old to this school. The formal school like setting was amazing and my daughter really did great. The staff is ALWAYS lovely, my daughter came home and taught me about every subject. It’s much better than the public school my other kid goes to here in New Rochelle (yeah that one a couple of blocks up the hill) There was never a complaint and the experience was just out of this world. If you can afford to, send your children here.
