New Bronx childhood education center holds ribbon cutting

The Harriet Tubman Early Childhood Education Center celebrated its grand opening at 565 Morris Ave. Monday.



The new facility, run by the Sheltering Arms Children and Family Services, provides free and affordable education and support for 139 low-income children between 2 and 4 years old in Morrisania.



According to shelter officials, the center is now the largest of their facilities in the Bronx. 



The 10-classroom center also offers ongoing assessment therapy and health services.



The center is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday to accommodate working parents.



Officials say they are still accepting enrollments.
