Children’s Learning Center Full Day Program
Associate Director .................................ext.133
Our educational philosophy is based on our knowledge of how children develop and learn. We strive to create safe, nurturing, child-centered environments that are age-appropriate for children eight weeks to five years old. We are concerned with all aspects of a child’s development – emotional, social, physical, cognitive, creative and aesthetic. Respect for individual needs and the development of self-esteem in each child is fostered. We support and work with parents as the primary caregivers of their children.
Our curriculum reflects the mission of the YWCA which encourages familiarity with, and respect for all cultures. Enrichment activities such as music, nature and fitness, and participation in other classes at the YWCA (swimming and gymnastics) are incorporated into the Children’s Learning Center Full Day program.
Our Programs reflect our educational philosophy. We work to create an environment in which young children learn through play and exploration of a variety of materials. Interactions with other children and adults foster language and social development. Play materials are selected which are age-appropriate and which promote problem solving and creativity. Outdoor play is valued as an important part of a child’s daily activities. The Center, situated in a wing of the YWCA Activities Building, offers a wide range of recreational opportunities for children. The YWCA Children’s Learning Center is a non-profit child care center licensed by the New York State Office for Children and Family Services.
