Who we are:
The New Rochelle Day Nursery is a non-profit organization, licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. The NRDN was first established in 1895 to meet the needs of working parents or those pursuing further education. Continuing today with the same purpose, the NRDN serves a complete cross-section of the population.
The New Rochelle Day Nursery serves children from 18 months through 5 years of age. The hours of operation are from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The NRDN is located in a state-of-the-art building designed specifically for early childhood education and dedicated to this purpose. The NRDN has a multi-level spacious playground with a covered porch for outdoor play during inclement weather. The NRDN also has a Head Chef as well as an Assistant Chef who make home cooked meals which meet CACFP nutritional guidelines.
Spring Drive 2014:
Our spring drive for the New Rochelle Day Nursery is underway!
We have set a goal of $70,000 to help fund the replacement of our roof along with projects to upgrade the security and improve the technological offerings to the children.
The New Rochelle Day Nursery (NRDN), a non-profit organization, is currently in its 119th year of providing an opportunity for diverse population of children ages 18 months to 5 years, an experience to grow educationally, socially and emotionally.
The most recent research in Early Childhood Education support the benefits of providing educational and learning opportunities for you children. Governor Cuomo has, as of this priorities made readily available Universal Pre-Kindergarten instructions for all children in the State of New York. The NRDN is currently providing Universal Pre-K instruction in partnership with the New Rochelle school systems.
We are very proud to note that youngsters who graduate from the NRDN are fully prepared to enter kindergarten or first grade with the required academic basic readiness, social skills and intellectual development.
We need your financial support to need the challenges of roof replacement and security enhancements for the NRDN.
