Zadie’s Nurturing Den

1 Walnut St., Summit, NJ 07901


Once you enter the doors of Zadie’s, an overwhelming sense of being at home overtakes you. From the colors on the wall to our clean, modern, and spacious facility, you’ll know you’ve come to the right place. Elzadie “Zadie” Smith has created a trio of childcare centers in  Summit and East Orange, that began over 20 years ago when she found herself thousands of miles away from her extended family members with three children and a traveling husband. She understood that a work-life balance greatly depended on a strong, dedicated support system. And because it did not exist for her, she created it. We tailor our approach and service offerings to the unique needs of families and children. By understanding the distinctive needs of parents, we’ve designed a program that engages both the child and their parent(s). We focus on nurturing and preparing our little ones for a successful transition after Zadie’s by fostering positive behaviors with enriching educational opportunities. Now enrolling children 6 weeks to 6 years old, stop by today for a tour of our facility!
