For more than 20 years, Rutgers Community Programs has been a place for families to grow together. We offer a relaxed, fun environment where children can play, create, express themselves, and explore, and parents can find friendship and resources to guide them through all stages of parenthood.

Our programs are designed to be with you and your family from the very start, with New Moms’ Support in the daytime and evening, free parenting and education workshops, and family-only playgroups; as well as classes in art; movement; dance; soccer; and Chinese language and culture, all developmentally appropriate for children as they grow from infancy to elementary school-age.

RCP offers your family a warm, inclusive community. Our instructors have been at RCP for many years, and support each other through team teaching and collaboration. Our facilities include an art studio, a gym, an auditorium with a stage, and a beautiful classroom for Ready, Set, Go!. Rutgers is a safe and supportive place, conveniently located at the corner of 73rd Street and Broadway. Rutgers Community Programs are secular and open to all.

Your teachers are dedicated, have high energy and are super nurturing. Your program is so unique and special that I am trekking from East Village to take my kids there. Having taken classes with my kids to various other Mandarin programs, I prefer your program as it has a warm family feel and motivates children to learn the language. I will recommend your program without reservation to anyone. — Marina, mother of twins in our Chinese Language & Culture Program
