Welcome to the Baruch College Early Learning Center.
The Mission of the Baruch College Early Learning Center, Inc. is to provide child care services to students who would otherwise not be able to attend college without these services. As part of its Mission the Center seeks to provide an age appropriate learning environment for children 2 ½ to 5 with referral and intervention services when needed and to provide student/parents with support as they pursue their degree.
