Since 1987, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has provided a therapeutic, pre-school experience for children with developmental delays.
The goal of the Bronx Early Learning Center (BELC) is to ensure that children with special needs successfully transition to public school kindergarten classes in the least restrictive environment possible.
The Bronx Early Learning Center, located on Bathgate Avenue in the South Bronx, is a vibrant and nurturing preschool community. There are 250 students-- 234 children with developmental delays associated with autism, Down syndrome, attention deficit disorder and neurological and emotional issues, and 16 typically developing children-- attending our integrated Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program.
We are looking for New York State certified teachers to join our interdisciplinary team of professionals who are changing children's lives as they prepare for their school-age years. You can apply here!
