She believes that education is a tactic against the caste system of poverty and racial and class discrimination. She believes equality and justice come through leveling the playing field with the tool of education. She believes and teaches that education should be modeled and coupled with good old-fashioned manners. Her philosophy is that if you teach a child, you are simply drawing out of a child what they were born with. Albert Einstein said, “Education is not the

learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.


About us

Our day care center Lucille Rose Day Care Center, located in Arverne, NY was founded in the mid 1970's by Ms. Lena Cook who was also a president of the Far Rockaway Branch of the  NAACP. It is named after Lucille Rose, the first black female deputy commissioner of the Department of Education.


Our day care center addresses the childcare needs of a vast number of families with a diverse cultural, economic and racial difference. It exists in the Rockaway community to address a lack of services to families managing everyday stress of securing culturally competent care.
