WE ARE RIDGEWOOD’S NEWEST PRESCHOOL WITH THE UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THAT COMES WITH THE Y’S YEARS OF SERVING OUR COMMUNITY.

We believe that ALL of our children will succeed and that individual interests and talents should be fostered from the very beginning. Paying special attention to the social emotional needs of children and families in our current environment/times it is more important than ever to take the time to get to know each family and each students individual needs.

Offering flexible half and full day options, plus on-site before and after care, our program can meet the needs of all families.

PROGRAMS

Our diverse curriculum is developmentally appropriate for each classroom and age group and includes language, reading and writing development, social and emotional learning, music, STEM, art, math, science, social studies, sports, swim and more!

Our facility includes large classrooms, an outdoor playground, gym. Large spacious classrooms are conducive to approved group numbers and required physical distancing.  

We make it a point to get to know each of our students and their families. We want your child to feel this is an extension of their home as we foster their love of school.

PRESCHOOL

Each of our programs are tailored to the needs of each specific age group we serve. 2’s 3’s 4’s 5’s each require a specific approach and we strive to provide that through our curriculum, daily activities and our small staff to student ratio. Ages 2.5-5.5.

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN

For parents struggling to decide whether they should delay kindergarten, we work with local school districts to meet the expectation of incoming kindergartners. Waiting to enroll in kindergarten can have benefits, particularly for children who have trouble self-regulating, or attending in a formal ed setting. 

With our small group settings and professional staff, we can address these issues to help get your child off on the right foot. Ages 5+.
