> Leonard Johnson Day Nursery

Our staff believes that children flourish in educationally-stimulating and loving community-based environments.

We are happy to note that over 400 youngsters and 500 parents and guardians were helped in 2010. Our program not only meets parents' needs for affordable child care, but the children's needs are fully met as they receive nurturing in all developmental domains in a secure, child-centered environment.  Children learn to build both fine and gross motor skills, receive nutritional meals and snacks, and participate in hygiene routines that adequately tend to their needs.  Developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive toys, learning tools, and equipment are all available here at Bergen Family Center. 

Recognizing our good work, state and county officials continue to award funds for additional infant/child care slots to our Leonard Johnson Day Nursery. In 2011, a local foundation pledged $70,000 to Bergen Family Center's Leonard Johnson Day Nursery for a Master Teacher Consultancy to train staff and enhance curriculum.
