WHY WE’RE HERE FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

FOR HEALTHY LIVING

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the YMCA, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Improving our community’s health and well-being In neighborhoods across the five boroughs, the YMCA is a leading voice on health and well-being. The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, nearly 400,000 youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors The YMCA has been listening and responding to New York City’s most critical social needs for 160 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policy makers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.

We’re Here for Good. It’s been the signature phrase of New York City’s YMCA since early 2008, and it describes the Y’s commitment to building the foundations of—and strengthening—our communities, through nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving community health and well-being and providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors. We’re here for you and your family. We’re here for the community. We’re here for good.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

We’re proud to ensure that the YMCA is accessible to everyone, and we never want anyone to be turned away for an inability to pay. Don’t hesitate to ask about financial assistance for programs or membership. We’re happy to help. We’re able to open our doors to all thanks to a community of generous supporters of our annual Strong Kids Campaign. Contributions to Strong Kids enable us to offer a number of our programs and services at low or no cost, and to make assistance available to make participation affordable. The Y is more than a membership card. We’re bigger than the programs we offer in our facility or around the community. Will you help us as a donor or volunteer fundraiser to ensure that everyone can be a part of the Y? To donate to the West Side YMCA Strong Kids Campaign or to get more information, please contact Wyndy Sloan at 212-912-2611 or wsloan@ymcanyc.org.

The primary objective is to get both the parent and child comfortable in the water. The child will become aware of the differences between moving through water and on dry land, while the parent will become aware of how to teach his or her child to be safer in and around the water. Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water while the parent guides him or her to learn aquatic skills. The child will be exposed to games that use basic movements in the water such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control. Activities are based on the developmental abilities of the child. The ParentChild program has four levels, all determined by age. Classes meet once per week. Parent or guardian must be able to participate with child in the water. SHRIMP | 6 - 12 mos.

BALANCED GROWTH

EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS | 6 MOS. - 6 YRS. CO-OP NURSERY SCHOOL | 2.4 – 6 yrs. The West Side YMCA Co-op Nursery School was founded in 1964 by a group of parents in the Lincoln Center area who wanted greater involvement in their children’s first school experience. Starting from a single classroom with 30 children, one teacher, and a daily parent assistant, the school today comprises 10 classes serving 130 children between the ages of 2 to 5 yrs. PARENT INVOLVEMENT The Co-op Nursery values the presence and involvement of parents. Parents have the child’s extraordinary opportunity to share their child’s school experience, to form strong relationships with the teachers and witness the energy and excitement of and Early Childhood classroom. By participating in the classroom on a regular basis, parents are able to see curriculum develop, to see the children interact and to gain a true understanding of the work of a teacher and the value of their child’s school experience. In the 3’s and 4’s classrooms “Helping Parent” begins in October, with each family participating on a rotating basis. “Helping Parent” in the 2’s program begins in January. Each family can expect to be a “Helping Parent” every 3 to 4 weeks. In addition to the “Helping Parent” responsibility, every Co-op family serves on one of several school committees, which sponsor school events and strengthen the school community. PHILOSOPHY AND CURRICULUM We believe strongly that young children learn through their play and hands on experiences. The Co-op Nursery School offers a rich, supportive learning and socialization environment for young children. Social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth is fostered through a balanced, developmentally based program For our youngest children, this means a special emphasis on the process of separation, adjustment to the school routine, and discovering the joys of new friends, teachers, activities and language. The 3 year-olds continue on this same journey, strengthening and refining social and physical skills, enjoying their role as a member of a group and the pure joy of discovering learning. The 4 year-olds relish their place in being the “big kids” at the Co-op. They love their independence, being the role model, and learning. 10 | WEST SIDE Y SUMMER/FALL 2013

At the Co-op Nursery, we value each child’s unique personality and temperament. Children need time to explore, experiment and play in their own way. Our daily program includes free-choice activities, outdoor play, group time, story time and music time. In addition to plenty of open-ended play, there are several special projects or activities daily including cooking, science, art and field trips. Social development is at the core of our program. We want our children to feel that they are liked, respected and to be confident learners in their classrooms. As a part of the West Side YMCA, the school places great emphasis on physical development and community awareness. Unique to our program are weekly swim, music and science classes. FACILITY Housed in the West Side YMCA - an architectural treasure! The Co-op Nursery School has six spacious, well-equipped classrooms. Children and parents enjoy recreational and educational opportunities throughout the YMCA, including use of one of the two pools, which are kept at a temperature comfortable for children; and gym, music and science classes. The children play outdoors on the rooftop playground or in Central Park. In September 2001, the West Side YMCA new McBurney Annex was completed and by September 2001 the Co-op Nursery moved into six state of the art classrooms. The new facility is equipped with: • Classrooms with pediatric toilets • Resource/library room • Art Room • Indoor and outdoor play space


STAFF Each class has a one head teacher, an assistant teacher and a “Helping Parent”. Many of the faculty members hold advanced degrees in Early Childhood Education or in a related field.

TENDER CARE | 6 MO. – 5 YRS.

Tender Care, is our child care center for children six months through 5 years of age, opened in 1986 at the West Side YMCA. Designed to provide flexible child care for working parents, Tender Care is open Monday - Friday from 8 AM to 6 PM. Approximately 60 percent of the children attend the center on a full-time basis, leaving openings in each classroom for families that need part-time care. The children in the Tender Care program are divided into three age groups – Tender Care I with children ages 6 months - 2 years, Tender Care II with children 2 - 3.5, and Tender Care III with children 3.5 - 5 years. These groups provide children with a classroom experience that best meets their developmental needs. PHILOSOPHY AND CURRICULUM Tender Care is committed to providing a safe, supportive living and learning environment for young children. It offers a nurturing, yet challenging program for children who are enrolled on a full-time basis, as well as an early group experience for children who attend part-time. Teachers create a warm and loving atmosphere while offering a developmentally-based, engaging curriculum, where children can play, discover and learn. Tender Care values each child’s unique personality and temperament. The development of independence, trust and initiative is fostered through a balanced program of free play and structure, quiet and active play, and group and individual time. Learning centers in each room include science, dramatic play, block building, library, art, music and manipulative materials. The children in Tender Care go outdoors each day and take advantage of the many play spaces in Central Park. In addition, there are special classes in swimming, science, gym, music and art.

STAFF Each class has a one head teacher and two assistant teachers. Many of the faculty members hold advanced degrees in Early Childhood Education or in a related field. The Tender Care Program also has specialists in music, science, gym, art and swimming. ADMISSIONS Parents may call or stop by the YMCA for an application the week of September 23rd. Applications are due back to the YMCA by January 20th. Once the completed application has been returned to the YMCA, a staff person will contact you to arrange a small group tour of the facilities. After the tour, your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list and every effort will be made to enroll your child as soon as a space becomes available. Financial assistance is available. Contact the school for an application. Application Fee: $75

Social development is at the core of our program. We want our children to feel that they are liked, respected and an integral part of the life in the classroom. Tender Care functions as a close-knit community of teachers, children and families. Each child develops a strong sense of community and belonging. Tender Care at the West Side YMCA is an experience unmatched by any other child care center in the area. FACILITY Tender Care has 5 spacious, well-equipped classrooms. In September 2001, once the West Side YMCA’s new McBurney Annex was completed, Tender Care acquired five state-of-the-art classrooms with: • Pediatric toilets • Resource/library room • Art Room • Indoor and outdoor play space 12 | WEST SIDE Y SUMMER/FALL 2013
