The New York Children's Store with A Difference

Shop in a unique new children’s boutique on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. We have a fabulous selection of children’s clothes, accessories and toys from newborns to preteens.

…and lots more fun, educational toys, children’s books and designer clothes for infants and toddlers.

The highly trained staff will help you:

  • shop for that special baby and child
  • custom design a baby gift basket starting at $50
  • select a unique birthday gift

A Time for Children is owned and operated by a NYC-based philanthropy and donates 100% of its profits to The Children's Aid Society, a charity which has been helping New York's children and families in need since 1853.

Our Difference

A Time for Children's Retail Readiness program provides employment and training on a revolving basis for groups of teens from Children's Aid programs and centers.

A select number of Children's Aid Society participants are enrolled in year round training programs teaching retail sales, merchandising and buying. After a short workshop period, the young people work in the store as sales associates under the guidance of a manager and assistant manager. Our mission is to provide our participants with careers in retailing.
