The Early Childhood Center at the Mid-Island Y JCC offers quality education, enrichment classes and parenting workshops. Our state certified staff teaches a challenging and engaging curriculum including language development, science, mathematics, art and literature, while providing a loving and nurturing environment for your child. Music and movement classes taught by specialists add an enjoyable dimension to many of our programs. Jewish holidays and Shabbat celebrations are interwoven through song, art, stories, food and special guests. We recognize the diversity of our community and offer a variety of services ranging from before and after day care to extra-curricular activities to meet the needs of our families. Our commitment is to provide a positive school atmosphere; one which promotes exploration, hands-on experience and intellectual growth fostering a lifetime of learning.
The center provides full-time educational programming and/or before and after daycare options for children ranging in ages from 2 months - 5 years and part-time educational and/or socialization programming on a school-year based calendar for children ages 20 months - 5 years. For parents who would like to take classes with their children, or for those parents who would like to enrich their children’s activities on select days with special interest classes, once-a-week programming is offered on a fall and spring semester calendar.
