Child and Family Center

The York College Child and Family Center, located on the site of the former St. Monica's church, provides quality childcare and early education program for children of York College Students, Faculty, and Staff.


Flexible Scheduling will be offered to parents using their class schedules as a basis for their child's enrollment. Flexible scheduling allows parents to only register their child/children for the days and hours needed for class, work-study, fieldwork, or studying.


Professional Staff consisting of certified teachers, assistant teachers, and aides. Our center offers an early childhood education program in a homelike, multicultural environment. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities, that stimulate the intellectual and creative abilities of each individual child while enhancing other developmental skills.


A Resource for the College Community: The Child and Family Center is an integral part of the academic community.   It serves as a work-study, fieldwork, and observation site for interns from various academic departments.   The child care center is directly connected to student-parent academic success and graduation.
