About Us

Our creative and constructive programming promotes physical, emotional and educational growth for children ages 2 ½ to 6.

The Ridgewood Y has been a hub of our community for nearly 120 years and our preschool embodies the Y’s philosophy of building a healthy spirit, mind, and body.

Our diverse curriculum is developmentally appropriate for each classroom and includes language, reading and writing development, social and emotional learning, music, art, cooking, math, science, social studies, sports, yoga, swim, and more! We also have on staff an Occupational Therapist and Speech Therapist who work with each class once per week using games to help develop speech and essential motor skills. 

Our facility includes large classrooms, an outdoor playground, gym, industrial kitchen and two indoor pools allowing us to offer unique swim and cooking sessions to our students.

By fostering creativity, compassion, self-expression and personal growth our approach to learning the Ridgewood YMCA Preschool develops confident and caring children with a passion for learning!
