See what students, teachers, staff, and school administrators are saying about NIDC.

I like NIDC. My favorite activity is Kidz Lit. I like that the counselors are nice and if you need something they will get it for you and treat you respectfully.

As a single parent, I really don’t trust many people with my daughter so it’s definitely a great feeling knowing that although I’m working and going to school my child is in good hands with the staff. Overall, NIDC is one of the best programs I have enrolled my daughter in and would definitely send my daughter every year possible.

As a working mother it’s hard to find a place that can provide a comfortable and safe environment, but I found that with NIDC. My child has been with NIDC since 2013 and also attended the summer camp program. While attending the NIDC program my child has excelled in math and reading, as well as life long lessons such as sharing, patients, and understanding. NIDC created a place where children and families have fun and develop wonderful relationships. I can’t be more pleased.

We are very active with our students and make sure they are in a safe environment. My director Toni is very organized and keeps all staff up to date with everything. She is a big reason why I love my job. I’m very confortable with coming to her help and questions. It’s good to have a director who is more than welling to help you grow. All staff members work as a team. At P.S 357 we are one big family and we welcome each other with open arms.

I like seeing the children interact with one another and forming connections with staff members. I also enjoy the variety of personalities of my fellow co-workers because we learn from each other to make each day better than the last!

I really appreciate all the great work Coach Perkin’s is doing at Eastchester Gardens. His professionalism and willingness to help others exceeds our expectations. I trust Coach Perkins with my children because i’m sure the children are learning and being taken care of.
