Children’s Center at Dutchess County Family Court

The Children’s Center Program provides a safe and fun environment for children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. We provide childcare for the children who have families that have business within the courthouse building. Our program provides board games and computer games, arts & crafts projects, reading, snack and dramatic play. We also provide referrals to services around the area like daycare WIC, Medicaid, literacy programs, counseling, support programs, and further resources that may be useful to families. Our number one goal is to make families feel safe and supported.
