Comprehensive in its approach, and innovative in its methods, our Center was founded in 1966 to address the growing needs for childcare in Westchester County.
The Center has since evolved into a multifaceted program offering a myriad of early childhood educational programs and services to families and children that reside or work in the County.
The Lois Bronz Children's Center offers a ground-breaking infant nursery; a toddler and two year old program; a pre-school and Federal Head Start program; Universal Pre-K; a before and after-school program for elementary school children; and Stepping Stones, a New York State certified special education pre-school Program. Our children also participate in many extra-curricular and enrichment activities, programs and services. Our Center is a well-equipped facility which enables us to care for approximately 200 children annually.
The Lois Bronz Children's Center (LBCC) is committed to creating a safe and nurturing educational center in which families, teachers and staff are in partnership. We provide an environment that enables each child to grow physically, intellectually, emotionally, culturally and socially. We value each and every child and strive to ensure that they reach their maximum potential.
The need for organized childcare in Greenburgh, NY was clearly demonstrated when the 1960 census indicated that 55 percent of the women living in the Fairview community were employed, and were forced to make whatever arrangements they could for their young children.
The Lois Bronz Children's Center has always been a community effort, and the childcare staff and administrative staff are the backbone of our success. Great leadership has been a key factor in our longevity and growth, and the Center has consistently secured and maintained a strong Board of Directors and Executive Directors.
