Dillon Child Study Center

Dillon Child Study Center

Each child’s development is fostered in all areas – physical, social, intellectual, emotional and moral – as he or she follows a unique pattern in the predictable sequence of growth.

The Dillon Child Study Center offers toddler, preschool and kindergarten programs based on the child development approach to the education of young children. Located on St. Joseph's College campus in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, Dillon, founded in 1934, is historically one of the first college preschools on the East coast.
