School and Child Care Search Service

About the services

The School and Child Care Search Service has gathered many resources within this website to help all families who are searching for child care and schools and invite you to use these as you research options. 

For those families who currently work or go to school at Columbia University, or who are being recruited to work here or have been accepted as students, The School and Child Care Search Service provides personalized support in finding:

  • In-home care for children
  • Early child care options in New York City
  • Public, charter, faith-based and independent schools in New York City
  • Boarding schools
  • Special needs schools and programs

Through workshops and personal consultations, the School and Child Care Search Service can help you become familiar with admissions and financial aid procedures, learn about tutoring and test prep, and, for parents with high school students, can also provide advice to supplement college guidance.
