The Riverdale Y's Early Childhood Center

The Riverdale Y Early Childhood Center offers a dynamic program for children ages 2–5. Our program features an integrated curriculum in literacy, numeracy, music, science, social studies and art. Additionally, our students are exposed to a curriculum that incorporates Jewish values and the celebration of Jewish holidays.

Our Universal Pre-Kindergarten classes follow the Common Core standards that are aligned with the New York State Department of Education learning standards.

Each classroom is led by a NYS Certified early childhood teacher and an assistant experienced in working with young children. We welcome parent involvement through conferences, special events, and daily visits to the classrooms.
