Charles R. Drew is the first step towards College and Career Readiness. 

Our mission is to inclusively enhance the lives of our students and their families. The center is dedicated to providing a safe, developmentally appropriate environment to all preschool children. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early childhood experience, which promotes each child's social/emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development. We appreciate the differences found amongst our families and our colleagues. We are committed to providing an environment in which diversity, distinction and merit are affirmed, celebrated and enhanced.

The services available at Charles R Drew are comprehensive. They include education, recreation, socialization, music and dance, health services, physical examinations and follow-up, speech therapy, physical and occupational therapy, psychological examinations, nutritional services and referrals to myriad of community and support services for our children and their families.

We offer free or low-cost childcare children ages 2-5 for NYC Pre-K, 3K, Early Learn, SEIT, and Special Education.
