The Riverdale Y
Early Childhood Center

At The Riverdale Y Early Childhood Center, your child is welcomed into our caring, nurturing environment where we honor and value each individual and their family. We invite you and your family to join us on this once-in-a-lifetime journey of discovery.


Our preschool offers a dynamic program with an integrated curriculum in literacy, numeracy, music, science, and art, that recognizes each child's unique and special abilities.


Guided by Jewish values and culture, we emphasize the importance of relationship building, and social development. Every child is respected as a competent and capable learner, full of potential and talent.


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.
