We are located at 50 Springside Avenue in the Arlington section of Poughkeepsie. We're in the Tinkelman Architecture building, on the northwest corner of Raymond Avenue and Route 44/55 Westbound, less than a mile north of Vassar College.

Our main entrance is accessed from our large, safe, well-lit parking lot on Springside Avenue. When traveling north on Raymond Avenue, continue straight across Route 44/55 Westbound, make your first left onto Springside and then left into the parking lot.

Handicap parking is available outside our street-level entrance on Van Wagner Road. Park at 35 Van Wagner Road and ring our bell for assistance.

We'd like everyone to have a fun and safe time at Poughkidsie! Here are a few things you should know before visiting:

  • Safety first! Caregivers are responsible for their children at all times; drop-offs are not allowed except for certain special programs.
  • We welcome you to enjoy a snack or beverage from Coffee Studio, but food and drinks are limited to designated areas. You are welcome to bring your own snacks but please be aware that products containing peanuts are strictly forbidden.
  • Socks must be worn by everyone entering our Village playspace. Shoes and bare feet are not allowed in the Village. (That includes adults!)
  • The Village is closed to the public when birthday parties are in session. On the weekends, please check our calendar, visit us on Facebook or call us at 845.243.3750 for open play hours.
  • All ages are welcome at Poughkidsie, and we've seen everyone from babies through 12-year-olds enjoying the Village. We recommend the Village to all children who enjoy or could benefit from creative and imaginative play. Our target ages for the Village are generally crawlers through age 8.
  • Looking for an activity for an older child? Check out The Create Workspace, a crafting studio sharing space with Poughkidsie. With large windows separating Poughkidsie and The Create Workspace, adults can keep an eye on multiple children enjoying different activities.
