Week of Respect

Barclay Early Childhood Center is celebrating The Week of Respect from October 2 - 6. During this time period, we join schools across the State of New Jersey in helping students to develop age-appropriate interpersonal skills so that they can demonstrate respect for others. Our Ambassador for Respect is Rusty the Respectful Raccoon. Ask your child if he or she has met Rusty!

Construction at Barclay

Starting July 24th, the front entry doors at Barclay Early Childhood Center will be closed. All parents and guests are asked to enter Door #3 (located at the mid-point of the building). There will be signage to help you find the temporary building entrance. We expect construction to continue through the summer and, most likely, into the start of the school year.
