CentroNía is excited to announce a new partnership with Stevens Early Learning Center, DC Public School’s (DCPS) first stand-alone early learning center opening in the newly renovated Thaddeus Stevens historical building located in downtown DC (1050 21st Street, NW). As a citywide school, families can live anywhere in DC to attend and DCPS will provide PreK3 and PreK4 programming, with a focus on high-risk children.
