Our Philosophy

We want to prove the Importance of early childhood development. The emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, so as to maximize their future well-being.

Our Program

The structure of each day consists of free play, music, singing songs, poetry reading, motor and cognitive, creative, sensory, dramatic, science activities, Mathematics and languages (English, Ukrainian). Individual work such as: art, poetry, music lessons (piano), writing and reading.


Barvinok Children Center exists to provide high quality child care which promotes the health growth and cultural development of children. Our programs are designed to meet the physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of each child. Our establishment is operated in accordance with the Office of Children and Family Services of state of New York.

Bilingual Program

Two Way Bilingual Program - TWB. It is a bilingual educational program that integrates second language learners (SLLs) – that is, English learners and English-speaking students for instruction in and though two languages. Important goal of these programs is to eliminate the isolation of English learners from English Speakers by providing them with a rich English-language environment and by supporting their academic learning with no risk to their native-language development.


We hope you enjoy your first glance into our world. You'll probably catch us doing what we love... teaching, playing, dreaming, and caring.

We offer flexible hours to meet the educational needs of children from 18 months through Kindergarten on a part time to full time basis. We also offer transportation from local public schools and after school care on-site through grade 5. Barvinok children enjoy hands-on learning within their classrooms, complimented by enrichment specials (computer tots, music and yoga) and field trips. Our creative approach to learning involves teaching the whole child through real world experiences; workbooks have their time and place, but they're not our primary focus. Keep them interested, excited and loved, and children will learn naturally at their own pace, with no pressure. "Doing what we love... teaching, playing, dreaming, caring."
