Faculty and Staff

The Center is administered by a full time director who oversees the program and staff. Activities are coordinated with many campus departments, as well as with the Education Department (both undergraduate and graduate divisions) of Wagner College.

Each group of children is under the guidance of a New York State certified cooperating teacher. The graduate assistant teachers are candidates for the Masters Degree in Education.

Additional help is provided by students from the College in areas of Nursing, Theater, Music, Psychology, Sociology and Education as part of their field practicum experiences.

The staff is committed to respecting the individuality of each child and is sensitive to their special needs.

The Early Childhood Center is an integral part of the teacher training program of the College, and is fully licensed by the Department of Health of the City of New York.
