CentroNía @ Upshur Now Open!

UPDATE: CentroNía @ Upshur is now open and accepting applicactions for 2.5-3.5 year olds as well as for our Studio ROCKS afterschool program for kids ages 5-8. For inquiries please contact our admissions office at, or 202-332-4200.

CentroNía is preparing to open a new site in DC’s Ward 4 to expand our early childhood and afterschool services to the many families that now live in that area. As housing prices in the Columbia Heights/Mt. Pleasant area continue to rise, many of our families have moved to different neighborhoods. According to a recent survey, about 49% of the children and families enrolled in our programs reside in Ward 4. Thus, this new location at 1288 Upshur Street, NW will make our services more accessible to those we currently serve while also giving us the opportunity to expand the capacity of our programs.

This new site will open in late September and it has capacity for 130 children. We will be opening 80 slots for early childhood education for children 2½-5 years old and 50 slots for Studio ROCKS, our multidisciplinary afterschool program, for kids 5-8 years old. Enrollment for both programs is currently open, so please contact if you would like more information.

Our special thanks to the volunteers who donated their time and worked hard to make this transition possible:

  • BB&T Bank
  • PNC Bank
  • American University
  • George Washington University
  • American Baptist Youth Convention Volunteers
