Welcome to East River Child Development Center


Located in Manhattan, ERCDC is a private, non-profit, family centered, community based preschool offering educational and therapeutic services to children with special needs between the ages of 2 and 5.

We believe that a child’s first experience in school should be a happy one.

This is best accomplished when teachers and parents work together to support your child’s educational experience.

Now touring…in-person and remote…for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021-2022 registration!

We closely follow CDC guidance as well as state and local authorities to maintain a safe and healthy school environment.
