For many, this is where the Baden Street journey began.
The Alvin Wesley Child Development Center provides day care services to children ages 6 weeks through 12 years, and is designed to meet each child’s physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs. The program strives to help each child reach his or her full potential through age-appropriate activities.
The Child Development Center is an accredited center by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services to serve 151 children. Two nutritious meals and a snack are served daily. Free hearing and speech screenings, and visiting nurse services are also provided.
