Philosophy

The Wagner College Early Childhood Center, the first established preschool and kindergarten program on Staten Island, provides unique opportunities for children age 2 years 3 months through age 6. We are committed to meeting the needs of the whole child during the formative years. The Center offers children an enriched environment in which they are encouraged to explore, imagine, create and discover in a small group setting.

The Early Childhood Center promotes a developmental approach to learning as the core of its methodology. It provides an individualized program that stresses social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
