About Us

Male African Amercain student working with teacher at Bergen Center for Child Development - private special education school in Haworth NJBergen Center for Child Development is a New Jersey State-approved private school, serving students with disabilities from kindergarten through grade 12, as well as those ages 18-21.

Situated on a quiet tree-lined street in the quaint village of Haworth, Bergen Center for Child Development offers a supportive, therapeutic educational environment for students with disabilities to thrive and grow in a warm, family-like atmosphere. We offer both both classroom and community-based instruction, with emphasis on academic and social/emotional learning.

Here, students learn through making connections to friends, teachers and the community. Programs are designed to enhance life experiences, self-esteem, and appropriate behaviors. We provide an environment that fosters intellectual curiosity and a positive attitude toward life long learning.

Our school is located in Haworth, New Jersey (Bergen County), minutes from Route 17 and the Garden State Parkway.


Bergen Center for Child Development is a member of NAPSEC, ASAH, and the Alliance of Private Special Education Schools of North Jersey.
