Children’s Community of Clinton Hill

April 16, 2008

Here’s a class picture of my nursery/pre-k class in 1979. As you can see it’s like a human kiddie crayola box. The Childrens Community of Clinton Hill nursery school, located on waverly between dekalb and lafayette, was very diverse and a reflection of the neighborhood at the time. You had black, white, east asian, latino and mixed kids. The teachers were great and really involved with the children as well as the community as a whole. They would throw events like roller skating, kiddie discos(it was the 70’s!) and various others. I still keep in touch with a few people in this picture and one of the teachers also taught me in Junior High School.

    I love all of your postings! It is so refreshing to see people keeping it real without (directly or indirectly) putting other people down. The historical perspective you bring to the blog is so much fun to read about.I’ve been in the hood for about fourteen years and don’t plan on ever leaving. Thanks.
