About Us

The Children’s Storefront works with families to promote the development of children in the first thousand days of life to build a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

Building on The Children’s Storefront’s fifty year history of changing lives in Harlem, The Storefront has returned to its roots and is now working with parents to promote the development of children in the first thousand days – or three years – of life. 

Over time, The Children’s Storefront plans to bolster parents/caregivers’ learning in the Learn and Play Centers with child development workshops, a resource center, and one-on-one learning opportunities drawing on the expertise and resources of New York City colleges, hospitals and other child welfare institutions.  It will also provide internships and research opportunities to students in these schools, including community colleges.  We hope you will join us on our journey!
