We've changed our name!

The Kennedy Child Study Center is now the

Kennedy Children's Center

Where Children, Families, and Communities Learn Together.

The Kennedy Children’s Center (KCC) was established in 1958 as one of the first special education providers in the nation. As we celebrate 60 years of continuous service to New York City children and families, our new name and tagline – Where Children, Families, and Communities Learn Together – are more reflective of our role as a modern provider of comprehensive special education preschool and related services for students and families in the communities in which we operate.

While we may have modernized our name, our organization is more committed than ever to offering high-quality special education services to children and their families. We are proud to offer the following services:

   Evaluations    Multidisciplinary evaluations in English and Spanish to children up to five years old to guide families in selecting the best educational and therapeutic services.
