Our 12-month program, licensed by the state of New Jersey, is held at our Martine Avenue facility, operating Monday-Friday, from 6:45am to 6:30pm. We provide warm and nurturing care for children ages 3 months-5 years, implementing the Creative Curriculum and CATCH programs. Staff is trained in CPR and First Aid.
Enrichment classes are offered to all students (infants through PreK), and are included in monthly tuition fees. Each week the children are exposed to literature from Story Time, fine arts with music and art classes, and develop their gross motor skills with physical education. The 3’s/4’s programs include swim lessons (child must be toilet trained) taught by the Y’s Aquatics Department.
Weather permitting, neighborhood walks and outdoor play give your child fresh-air daily. During inclement weather, our mini gym gives the children plenty of room to exercise. We teach the children healthy habits with daily exercise and offer healthy snacks twice a day, along with milk and bottled water for lunch/snack time In keeping with the Y’s goals, we encourage character development through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
The Child Care program also offers limited part-time in our toddler, 3 and 4 year old classes. This is a great benefit for parents who are able to work from home a couple of days per week, yet need child care on the days that they are needed in the office. Limited two, three, or four day options are available. Our caring staff creates a welcoming environment, making the part-time transition a smooth one for both, the parents and child.
