Jenny Nikolayeva

Early Childhood Teacher

I’m Jenny, and this is my 8th year teaching at the Riverdale Y. I completed my Master’s in Early Childhood Education at Hunter College, and since then, I’ve been certified to teach from PreK up to 2nd grade. I’ve gained so much experience working with children ages two, three, and four years of age for the Y’s Early Childhood Center. It’s been a pleasure being able to channel my dedication and creativity to nurture children.


I’m passionate about working with young children, and helping them to grow, learn, and explore.
