Crossroads was started in 1947 by a group of Institute parents who wanted a pre-school experience for their children. Originally housed in one of the buildings on Olden Lane Circle, the school moved to 90-91 Einstein Drive in 1957 and to its present location at 225 Olden Lane in 1994. At the time of the move to Olden Lane, the Institute for Advanced Study rebuilt the former ECP building to meet all current state standards and the program expanded to offer full day care for children 3 months to 5 years in addition to the pre-school program for which it had been known.

Total enrollment approaches 60 children who are divided between five groups. Infants, ages 3 to 15 months and toddlers, age 16 to 29 months, are enrolled in a full-day, 8:00 to 5:30 program. There are three pre-school classrooms for children 2-1/2 to 5 years of age, with two possible drop-off times (8:00 or 9:00 am) and three pick-up options (1:00, 3:30 or 5:30 pm).

Crossroads is incorporated as a non-profit organization and is licensed by the Division of Youth and Family Services of the State of New Jersey. Crossroads does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion or national origin.
