Letter from the Director

Dear Families,

Welcome to: 

We hope you and your family will find a home enjoying this special time with our program. 

We are proud to say, DZ Arts Development, Inc. is a fully licensed childcare provider with the NYS Department of Health Office of Children and Family Services.  We are dedicated to providing your child enrichment and high quality specialty classes, promoting the whole child, right at your school!

Our program seeks to support all social and emotional development while offering children the highest level of programming in a substantive afterschool environment.  There are no buses or transportation involved. For safety and convenience, children remain on school grounds or in dedicated NYC parks next to your child’s school always accompanied by our staff from pick up until dismissal.

Your child will be received directly into our program from their classroom teachers and escorted by our staff to the social hall for snack, break time and restroom time.  After snack, we offer fun with friends and homework help stations with dedicated staff for any child who would like assistance where we provide a special time to unwind, socialize and relax before your child’s specialty class of the day begins.

Our program takes pride in creating fun and unique curricula that help to accelerate learning. We offer a large menu of class options for all students and grades in a wide range of changing subjects from Performing, Creative and Fine Arts, Stem and Steam, Chess, Martial Arts, and an abundance of Sports! 

We aim to provide a safe, nourishing and fun environment both in class and out while striving to learn something new each day!

We believe afterschool time should be a quality time for your child. We pledge to support your child’s needs, growth, comfort and goals. If there is anything you would like to discuss we are always here for you.

All the best,

Laura Brown, Director
