About Us

Our facility is right in the middle of the greatest city in the world, and we take full advantage of the many attractions available to entice, engage, and expand the horizons of naturally curious children. From the top of Manhattan’s Empire State Building to the depths of Coney Island’s Aquarium, from the Bronx Zoo to the Queens Hall of Science, our groups will participate in age-appropriate trips and activities guided by experienced Caedmon teachers and other talented specialists.
