  • GREENPOINT Y EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER Toddler & Little Kid | Ages 2 – 5 years* the early Childhood Center at the Greenpoint Y focuses on the developmental needs of each child in order to foster intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth. Using play-based learning techniques, children are able to explore the environment safely as they experiment with hands- on activities. Learning takes place daily in science, math, literacy, dramatic play, art, and sensory centers.

    physical development is a large component addressed through swim lessons (for those 3 and up), yoga, structured gym activities, free play, and trips to local parks. Children are encouraged to move throughout the day as they become more and more confident in their motor control.

    our dedicated staff is trained using the latest research in early childhood education which is applied in our daily lessons. the role of the teachers is to guide the children’s collaboration with peers and to provoke creative thinking.
