Small World Child Development Center Inc. is a family-owned, state-accredited preschool with a center in Waldwick, NJ. Our small class sizes and prekindergarten programs are designed to meet the individual needs of children aged 2 months through 6 years old.

Toward that end, we have structured our early childhood programs into 5 basic age groups, which allow our teachers to give every single child personal attention and age-appropriate activities and supervision.

We offer FREE registration for all new enrollees. Call our center to enroll your child. We host children from the communities of Montvale, Allendale, Wyckoff, Woodcliff Lake, Saddle River, Midland Park, Ramsey, Ridgewood, Upper Saddle River, and the immediately surrounding areas.

Inside Your Infant's Day

Infants will sleep, eat, and play on their own schedule. Our qualified teachers work closely with parents to duplicate each infant's home schedule to secure a happy, healthy transition. Our infants thrive on the quality care they receive.

An Enriching Curriculum for Toddlers

Toddlerhood is a time of exploration. A child can explore and socialize in a warm, loving atmosphere. Learning activities are scheduled throughout the day to introduce structure and the concept of sharing. At this age, the child is learning to become independent. Participation in hands-on activities and toilet training are encouraged but never forced. 

Structured Program for Two-Year-Olds

The 2-year-olds are learning to become independent people. Speech development and motor skills would be growing rapidly during this period, some call the "terrible twos." If they want something, they take it. If they're mad, they scream or hit.

Our teachers model the correct way to interact with each other and their environment. This helps children learn positive ways to control their impulsiveness. Teaching them to control themselves in a positive manner is the goal of our program for the 2-year-olds.

An Enriching Prekindergarten Program (Three-Year- Olds)

This is the age when children begin working well in small groups. They'll begin learning kindergarten-level reading skills and enrich their already advanced social skills through hands-on activities. Developing a love for learning and creating close friendships are the two important aspects of our program for the 3-year-olds. 

Outstanding Prekindergarten Program (Four-Year-Olds)

Our prekindergarten program prepares children for kindergarten through various academic and social activities. A warm, safe atmosphere will enhance the child's love for learning. The four-year-olds will be able to work well in small groups and can develop close friendships.
