LDEO Childcare Center

Lamont-Doherty Child Development Center

Bright Horizons has been Lamont's child care provider since 2001 with facilities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, and kindergarten prep. The Center has received NAEYC accreditation. The program offers both full-time and part-time care options, as well as emergency back-up care. Although Lamont and Columbia employees get preference for openings, as of now, there are community children who also attend the Center.

The Center offers a nutritious lunch along with morning and afternoon snacks served daily. The menu includes a variety of kid-friendly choices that parents have approved. Suggestions from parents are welcome.

Bright Horizons has added efamily, an informative weekly article emailed to families regarding current topics that range from healthy snacks and family dynamics to news reports and safety tips. The Center has its own monthly newsletter that pertains to this location as well as other information from Bright Horizons.

Bright Horizons is located approximately .7 miles north of the Lamont campus on 9W. The Center can also be accessed via a .25 mile walk through the woods.
