Newark Federal Kids Care
Welcome to Newark Fed Kids! We are a bright, cheery, recently renovated center in the Peter Rodino federal building, serving federal employees as well as community families. We are only a few blocks from Penn Station and conveniently accessible to all public transportation.
We strive to provide a quality educational, nurturing, fun environment for our children ages 2 months to 5 years. The smiling faces and happy voices of our children, as well as their preparedness for their next school experience are our best indicators of quality!
970 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 07102
Hours of Operation: We are open 52 weeks a year, Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. for Full-time, Part-time, and Drop In Care.
We have 5 spacious classrooms, a new indoor gym, and a new, state-of-the-art outdoor play area.We are licensed by the New Jersey Deptartment of Youth and Family Services, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and endorsed by Eco-Healthy Child Care.
The children enjoy weekly sessions with our Music/Movement teacher and story time with a local librarian. We serve healthy, nutritional snacks and offer an option for hot lunch. Our Preschool teachers provide a Kindergarten Readiness program. The teachers often take the children on excursions in the surrounding neighborhood. They visit local shops, the post office, and the fire station. Several times per year they take field trips which include visits to Cherry Blossom Park, the Newark Museum (Symphony Hall) and the Newark Public Library. During the summer months we have a special recreational summer program which includes water play.
"Imagine is a wonderful place for our daughter to learn and grow. The schedule of activities ensures that she is constantly stimulated, active and exposed to a variety of experiences. The staff and teachers genuinely care for the children and create a warm, loving environment where the children are encouraged to explore and learn. And the staff and administration take the time to communicate with the parents routinely and effectively. We are confident our daughter is receiving excellent care and we are very happy with Newark Fedkids."
"My children have blossomed at Imagine. The teachers focus on each child's individual development. I am consistently impressed by the creativity and dedication of Imagine's staff."
"I have never worried about the care that my boys get at Imagine. Everyone at Imagine truly loves them. But what makes the staff at Imagine really stand out for me is that they are also great with me, the full-time, working mother of twin boys. That’s the kind of caring for which there is not a big enough “thank you.”
If you are interested in the program please make an appointment to tour our center.
