The path to wisdom and wonder starts here

Our Program

Joyful Learning – Engaging Curriculum

As a New York State Education Department Accredited program, our comprehensive approach to curriculum engages the youngest of learners. Theme-bases learning, developed in accordance with developmentally appropriate goals for each age group, provides each child an opportunity to explore a variety of topics. We whole-heartedly believe in a diversified approach to education which incorporates hands-on experiences, including small, whole group, and one-to-one instruction, to meet the needs of all learners. We have developed a challenging and engaging curriculum, all while providing a loving and nurturing environment for your child.

About Us

The Early Childhood Center at the Mid-Island Y JCC is a place where children explore the world around them to become independent learners. Our curriculum emphasizes early literacy, mathematics, scientific exploration, critical thinking, and health and fitness. As a comprehensive center, we provide parenting and parent/child classes, transition and separation programs, daycare for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years, and both part-time and full-time nursery school classes for children ages 2 through 5.

We’re almost always open! Wrap-around care is available Monday through Friday.
Transportation to and from school is also available.

Diverse Learning Opportunities

Music, art, movement, physical education, swim, and nature specialists enhance your child’s learning experience.
In addition, multi-media opportunities, using the latest technology, are seamlessly woven into the daily activities.

Multi-Cultural Programming

Our children come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. While Jewish values and traditions are holistically woven into
our program, the children are taught to be global citizens and to learn and discover from one another.

Warm-Caring Teachers

Our highly-qualified, state certified teachers provide your child with the most hands-on educational experiences possible, aligned
with the NYS Early Learning Guidelines. A multi-sensory approach to teaching in a center-based environment meets the needs
of all learners. A wide variety of experiences for your child on a daily basis is how we engage the early learner and foster a love
for learning.

Enriching After-School Activities

We offer a unique and engaging assortment of after-school programming. Our classes range from dance and movement, to sports, STEM, art, and literacy-based
activities. Extend your child’s day at the MIYJCC with either a gross motor-based class or one that will expand his or her mind.
