DOWNTOWN EARLY CHILDHOOD ASSOCIATION (DECA): A COOPERATIVE NETWORK OF THE LEADING NURSERY SCHOOLS IN DOWNTOWN NYC
The Downtown Early Childhood Association (DECA) is an informal membership association made up of the leading pre-schools, nurseries and early years settings in the most southerly neighbourhoods on New York’s Manhattan island.
With more than 30 years of history, the Downtown Early Childhood Association has been supporting members with sharing and developing best practice approaches to early years childcare and education.
DECA’s member schools are considered to be amongst the best and most prestigious in New York City and can be extremely heavily subscribed with lots of competition for places. Many of these schools are as old or older than DECA itself having both heritage and pedigreee.
Membership is voluntary with DECA acting more as an informal network than a formal trade body. As such, membership varies from time to time so you should check with DECA here for the latest details. Nonetheless, the schools below are known to be current or recent members.
