Inspiring a Lifelong Love of Learning
Being 4-years-old is a magical time. So much to learn and so many ways to learn it! At this age, children are eager to explore, create and absorb ideas. In our preschools, we provide a nurturing environment in which children develop their language, cognitive, physical and social skills — learning about the world, being creative, and letting their imaginations soar.
Each of our preschools provides targeted support to work with each child and address any challenges to reach developmental milestones. Across programs, this includes children exhibiting signs of autism spectrum disorder and children with learning disabilities and developmental delays.Our programs are child-directed, building on the curiosity of the children themselves. Creative exploration and access to a rich array of learning opportunities give our children pre-literacy skills and promote self-esteem, just what they need to succeed in school and in life. Children thrive in classes with high adult-to-child ratios. Our teachers use an evidence-based curriculum, the Creative Curriculum, that is child-centered, encouraging children to explore their world.
Our Ames Early Childhood Learning Center in Yonkers provides Universal Pre-Kindergarten, special education, and integrated classrooms to meet the specific needs of each child. Our Brownell School in the Bronx provides special education preschool classes. Our Children’s Learning Center in Manhattan specializes in supporting children exhibiting signs or diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
