Promoting Multi-Sensory Learning With a Strong Social Aspect

Early Childhood Education, Care and Wellness

South Shore Children’s Center is an Early Childhood Education Center focused on offering a developmentally appropriate program and experience for children. We recognize that families and children do not come in a “one size fits all” model. Our unique ability to differentiate the early childhood experience based on the needs of individuals allows us to offer a myriad of services.

  • Half Day classes for Toddlers (2’s) Preschool (3’s) and PreK (4’s)
  • Full day programs licensed by OCFS Infant, 2's, 3's, 4's
  • School Age Before and After Care for older siblings
    (East Islip SD students grades K-5)
  • Universal Pre-K program Community Based Organization
    (CBO) service provider for East Islip School District
  • Integrated Co-teaching classrooms
  • On site related services for Speech/OT/PT with Little Angels, inc.

At South Shore, we meet the needs of children at their developmental stage, offering differentiated learning experiences. Our New York State Certified teacher’s explore all of the educational disciplines including Math, Science, Social Studeis, ELA. A main focus will be pre emergent reading skills. Our curriculum is uniquely designed by us, and revolves around monthly Theme units that are child friendly and interesting. We use a hnds on approach to learning and discovery with the philosophy that it is the “Process

NOT the Product”. Children learn by DOING, so we let them DO IT!


Our state of the Art environment is a facility specifically designed for our program. Every classroom is large and filled with natural light. The rooms are clean and organized, offering a comfortable, healthy atmosphere.
