Early Childhood Classes

Educational Philosophy

At the Riverdale YM-YWHA Early Childhood Center, we see each child as a unique individual. Our program is designed to maximize the development of the whole child — intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. The children encounter many learning opportunities and challenges in a stimulating classroom environment.

Our classrooms are organized around learning centers that are equipped with developmentally and educationally appropriate materials, including: manipulatives, puzzles, books, writing implements and art materials. Our facilities include an outdoor playground and play deck. We also make use of additional Y! resources such as the gym during inclement weather.

Parental involvement creates a dynamic educational experience.
