Kings Bay Y at Fort Greene & Clinton Hill's Early Childhood Program focuses on toddlers’ development. Our curriculum is designed based on children’s primary needs at ages 12-24 months. This is the age when emotional, physical, cognitive, social and verbal skills are growing at an exceptional rate. Children are learning through the exploration of themselves and the world around them. The curriculum will concentrate on identifying and developing each child’s individual needs. To stimulate and meet the growing needs and interests of our children, the daily curriculum includes a variety of activities:
• Full and Half-Day Programs available (including early bird and extended stay)
• Bank Street progressive approach
• Fully licensed and experienced staff
• Jewish cultural activities
• Music, Art and Movement specialists
• State of the art facility
• Daily snacks - nutritious and delicious
• Project Based Emergent Curriculum
• Daily walks
We use special buggies to transport our classes to nearby playgrounds where the children engage in cooperative games and free play. Fort Greene Park is only few blocks away and we take advantage of it by going on nature walks, having fun at the playground, enjoying being outside and learning about the many plants, birds and animals that share our world with us.
Since children learn and evolve at what seems like lightning speed, we make sure to document their work every day so that you can see the progress your child is making firsthand. You'll be seeing the stimulating and fun projects that we work on when your proud children bring them home to you. We create folders for the kids and take many photos during the day so that you can glimpse the fun that we are having learning, playing, and exploring.
Our school runs year-round -- however, we do accept students on an ongoing basis, so whenever there are openings available and our schedule permits it, a student can come join us!
