My experience with 3Ds Aftercare Inc has been nothing but positive. This environment has allowed me to be creative and innovative when working with the kids, and this helped me establish great relationships with them, as well as other staff members. 3Ds is an amazing place for children to grow, learn about themselves, and learn about the world around them. Children are provided with a family style environment, and I think this is what makes this business so great. Dr. Zoe is truly dedicated and driven to make a difference in the lives of the children she works with.

Amazing is the word I would have to use to describe 3Ds. Everything about it is amazing from the friendly and hospitable staff to the services offered daily all makes 3Ds amazing! I’ve been extremely impressed with how they have continued to thrive throughout this pandemic. 3Ds has not missed a beat and made sure that no family in need went without services. Again I say Amazing!!!!

3D is helping empower their youth through the community in which they live. By seeing what they can do to help in their own backyard, it gives these children the opportunity to make a difference at their level, and see how that ripples out beyond what they touch.

Director is absolutely amazing! She loves our community and follows through on all questions and concerns. The facility is super clean and offers meals for the children. Temperature screenings and face masks required; enhanced safety scanning for check-in/out with immediate emails to caregivers. The staff is always friendly and the program offers great opportunities for the children to learn things outside of regular curriculum. Thumbs up for this Baldwin golden nugget!

This nonprofit organization has one of the best aftercare programs in Nassau County. They love, care, and treat each child with respect. They speak life into the children and let them know they can be anything they set their minds too. Education is one of their first priorities and social and emotional learning is right after; holding groups for the young girls and boys in the program to talk about things they otherwise probably would not speak about such as; bullying, honesty, loyalty, hygiene, and being a great friend. The program also has great hours of care open from 6:30 AM until the late evenings at 7 PM. Each child needs are met with gentle care and logic.

When we moved to Baldwin we were looking for a place that fostered a positive environment and just a love for kids. Look no further we found that in 3D’s. My daughter loves the staff and the students. When my daughter grows up I will always look back at 3D’s as a place that supported her growth.

Starting a new Girl Scouts group in Baldwin, we were stuck without a place to meet! 3D's graciously opened their space to us and allowed us to get our group started. Dr. Zoe is helpful and flexible. Thank you for putting our children first and allowing us the opportunity to lead them in a safe space!

My children love 3D's Aftercare! The program exceeded our expectations and I am so appreciative to Dr. Zoe for her passion and commitment to our young people. Dr. Zoe goes above and beyond to serve and it shows. She is professional, transparent, and stands in integrity. My children were able to engage in so many different activities and were exposed to many great experiences!! Dr. Zoe believes so strongly in partnership and community!
My children took dance classes, yoga classes, went on multiple trips, learned how to play soccer, learned how to bowl, learned how to grow their own vegetables & fruits, exposure to politics, money management, entrepreneurship, etc! And I also love the diversity among the children enrolled in 3D's. I feel so blessed my children have access to such an incredible organization. Thank you 3D's & Dr. Zoe!

Three years ago I was in need of after school care for my daughter. I was new to Baldwin and nothing seemed feasible or academically attractive for what I needed. I discovered 3D’s at the 100th year library celebration. My daughter was amazed on our first visit and we both fell in love with what was offered. 3D’s prepares our children on how to survive by showing them how to cook, sew, iron, maintain their hair, finances and so much more. The safety of our children that’s provide, especially during the pandemic is amazing. The director Dr. Williams, go above and beyond for the families in assisting us any way that is needed. My daughter still attends the after school program and I would recommend 3D to any family in need of care.

One of my best experiences since moving to Baldwin this year. Thank you Dr. Zoe and staff for treating the kids like one of your own. I did a lot of research before choosing this wonderful program. My daughter never liked after school. She attended camp at 3D and now goes to 3D during her virtual days. She loves the program and all of the activities along with the food! :) Thank you 3D. I look forwards to many years and memories!

I’m a parent that exactly one year ago was in great need of an after school for my daughter. The first day that we walked into 3D just to see the place my daughter never wanted to leave. They teach the children so much, like how to braid, iron, sew, cook dance, do yoga and now she’s equipped to teach them music. The list goes on and on about all that Dr. Zoe and her staff do for our children. Some of the things that I love the most is, the children eat dinner, they pray, say grace together and they respect one another. During this pandemic Dr. Zoe extended herself in keeping the center clean and ensured the safety of all the children. She continuously kept her business running for essential workers. As an essential worker and parent Dr. Zoe and her team made it very easy to not have to worry or stress about the safety of our children. I will say there are many after school programs in the neighborhood but not one quite like 3D. The owner, Dr. Zoe has a motto “be a rainbow in someone cloud” and up to this day that is exactly what she has been to me and my daughter. She always make sure everyone have even before herself. Recognition to Dr. Zoe, Love her and her staff.

My self and husband are both essential workers , with long hours, therefore ,we feel at ease knowing that our youngest son attends an afterschool that supports is education. Lets just say 3Ds aftercare is on our list as one of best things that has happened for my family. The sense of security that we have when our boys attend the center is so comforting. Dr. Zoe is amazing and very professional as well as her staff. My boys constantly rave about the great times they have when they get home. The center plays a great role in the empowerment of children, whether its education and teaching life skills that will encourage their positive growth.

I love this place. I was very nervous when I began looking for a before/ after school program this summer. I reached out to several places but after meeting Dr. Zoe, I knew she was the one. She has a heart of gold. Dr. Zoe and her staff, go above and beyond for these kids and after 2 months here, I don’t regret my decision. It’s great that I can drop my daughter off in the morning, with peace of mind, that she will be taken of. I highly recommend 3D’s if you’re searching for a nurturing, caring and loving environment.

3D’s Aftercare has been AND IS a great blessing to my daughter Neveah and my family.
With all that is going on in the world, we all yearn for childcare that provides the kind of care that dropping them off there feels the same as taking them to your families house.
Neveah feels safe, loved and is more and more vibrant each day at pick up as she learns the life skills needed to thrive in an ever evolving society. The staff is professional and highly observing of both her needs and the concerns of the parents! Even down to the meals Ms. Zoe provides, they are a superb place for any child to learn and be nurtured.
God Bless You 3 D’s!!!!!!

As Director of Community Affairs, for the states 18th District I have been to several centers and they are all necessary for the communities they serve. Most of them have been great overall but 3D's aftercare provides a special experience for youth that's unmatched. Many kids get to go there to and spend hours experiencing music, art, and playtime with other youth and that is important during these difficult times. It is a beautiful place to come see and Dr. Z makes sure to teach everyone who enters it's doors the valuable lesson in taking pride in what we have. There is plenty offered there in the way of activities to keep young people mentally stimulated and engaged. It's exactly what our young people need more of and parents especially can appreciate that an aftercare center like 3Ds is available to them as well.

Non profits live and die based on the support they receive from Donors. I believe people give to causes that will best support the future wellness of people and its communities thus building a better world. This starts with children. 3Ds dedicates itself to the betterment and empowerment of children and even more importantly, children in underserved communities. I recommend you pass by, stop in, see the smile a child has just being in the environment. Support the cause that supports our youth and shows them a road to success.

3Ds leadership and staff are amazing! My daughter started with a special self-esteem program last year, we did summer camp this past summer and now she’s there for after school. She feels supported academically and emotionally and looks forward to attending each day. She even asks to attend on the days schools are closed. My daughter talks about the creative activities from financial literacy, yoga, learning a second language and culinary arts. Seeds have been planted through these topics and I am grateful!

I am so proud to have a 5 star community center available to my community and surrounding communities. 3D is truly a community center that meets the needs of the community and beyond. It provides comprehensive services for the entire family. Dr. Williams programs focus on enriching the community in many ways. I have attended several memorable, enjoyable, and enriching programs at 3D. I especially love her safe and comprehensive programs she has for after school children. This program is so valuable to parents and our community. I also enjoy the ladies only vision board programs that allow women to come together, form lasting friendships , provide networking and a support system that help build families and communities. Yes 3 D community center is All of that with several bags of chips and your favorite libation.

When my daughter passed away, 3Ds and the owner Dr. Zoe established a Scholarship in her honor. I didn't know how much that would mean to me at the time, but after 3 years, the impact the scholarship has meant to me and the recipients so far has been priceless. Dr. Zodelia is truly the empathic beating heart of an organization that truly looks out for the community and the children and families they are destined to serve. There's not enough space on this post to go into the other amazing work they do daily with providing a safe, predictable, and nurturing environment to children in their day care and various after-school programs - especially during such scary, unprecedented times.

3Ds is definitely a 5 star nonprofit that stands by its mission and values and touches the lives of so many people every day.

3Ds Aftercare is a place for adolescents and teens alike can learn about the world around them express themselves through the exchange of ideas to their peers in a safe place. They also learn how to create , develop and run actual businesses (entrepreneurial spirit). Through the leadership of Dr. Zodelia Williams 3Ds has grown in profile and stature in the local Baldwin community and in Nassau County at large. I am excited to see how 3Ds Aftercare will grow and continue to increase community engagement in the future.
