Mission Statement

The Bellevue Day Care Center (“BDCC”) is committed to providing high-quality programs within a safe, nurturing and supportive environment. It is dedicated to the achievement of developmental milestones in the cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth of Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers. The Bellevue Day Care Center’s tradition of close collaboration with Bellevue Hospital Center, along with City and State agencies, guides the center’s commitment to excellence in providing accessible and affordable education to children of the employees of Bellevue Hospital, the neighboring community, and families in the City of New York.


Bellevue Day Care Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1971 by members of the Auxiliaries of Bellevue Hospital Center. Its purpose was to provide early education and child care services to employees of the hospital and the surrounding community.

Over the years, Bellevue Day Care Center, Inc. has sponsored a variety of programs in an effort to meet the evolving needs of our families. Past programs sponsored by Bellevue Day Care Center, Inc. were Educare Early Childhood Center – Preschool and School Age programs and volunteer programs for Center alumni.

In 2006, Bellevue Day Care Center, Inc. returned “home” within Bellevue Hospital Center and offers early education and child care services for children 6 months to 4 years old.

The growth of the organization, as we reach our 50th year, has marked Bellevue Day Care Center, Inc. as a leader in New York City. The vision of the Board extends into the future, as we continue to plan to meet the needs of families with young children.

Bellevue Day Care Center Inc. is a tax exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
