Learning, Growing, and Thriving at the Y

Our early childhood education programs use Creative Curriculum. This approach to teaching preschool children uses spontaneity and the ability to use everyday opportunities to help children solve problems, explore new materials and find answers to questions. In addition to Creative Curriculum, learning centers within the classroom offer an excellent way to individualize the curriculum to meet the varying needs of your child. These areas support a variety of activities. Materials are related by subject, purpose, or projected skills. Activities and materials are used independently by children or with the direction of a teacher, to reinforce skills and concepts.

Located on the new BOCES Albany Campus, preschoolers will have the chance to enjoy field trips to the many programs BOCES offers including culinary arts and dog therapy.
