Our Beginnings


The Roosevelt Island Day Nursery was established by a group of Island parents in 1975 and incorporated as a not-for-profit educational corporation in 1979. It currently provides infant/toddler and early childhood programs at two sites on Roosevelt Island.


The school was planned as a part of the new urban community on Roosevelt Island. Our families now reflect the rich ethnic, cultural, and racial diversity of the Roosevelt Island community.
