Straight & Narrow’s two early childhood education and learning centers provide quality childcare to the children of Paterson’s low-income families. La Vida Too, located at 116 Jackson Street in Paterson, is an Abbott preschool for three and four-year-old children. La Vida Three is located on Carol St in Paterson.

The mission of the two childcare centers is to provide superior early education for children. This is accomplished in a loving and nurturing environment where the children’s physical and emotional needs are continuously monitored by a staff of well-trained and dedicated professionals and para-professionals. The goal of the childcare centers is to equip the children, who almost certainly would not otherwise have such an opportunity, with the fundamental skills needed to begin school, and ultimately, to provide them with the educational and socialization foundation that will carry them through a rewarding and successful educational and life experience.

The childcare programs emphasize school readiness, parent involvement and the achievement of early childhood developmental tasks. These objectives are implemented in a full-day program with a curriculum that includes age-appropriate educational, social and recreational activities. Straight & Narrow’s child care centers are open five days a week from 6:30 AM to 5:30 PM to accommodate those parents who have multiple responsibilities and/or work long hours.
