YMCA of Greater New York - Cross Island is an early education center that provides preschool for 4 year olds. The center is in its own building, in Bellerose.
The program has lots of activities for children to explore art, nature, music, dramatic play and more. Teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, mutual respect and promote positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. They have lots of time to talk and ask questions.
There is outdoor space for children to play and get fresh air, as well as dedicated indoor play space apart from the classroom. Both early drop-off and late pick-up are available at this program.
