Ella Baker/Charles Romain Child Development Center


The Ella Baker/Charles Romain Child Development Center was established in October 1982 to provide child care services to the children of students, staff and the College’s surrounding community. Since 1984 when the State began to fund the child care centers of The City University of New York, enrollment of the Children Centers was limited to the children of the college students.

Medgar Evers College Child Development Center is located in the Carroll Street Building, Room 107. The program consists of child care for children from 2 to 5 years old, which includes NYC Board of Education full day Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program. We also offer an after-school program for children ages 5 to 12 years old. The Center operates on a subsidized fee schedule which is based on public funding eligibility. Due to limited space children are accepted on a first come, first served basis. The Center operates from Monday- Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Center follows the College’s calendar with regard to holidays and other College normal days of operation.
