We know that who is watching your child is important to you.

We have nurturing and friendly CPR/ First Aid-certified teachers in every room.

Sometimes a child needs to take medicine, so we even have MAT-certified (Medication Administration Trained) teachers at each site to administer your child’s medication in a safe manner.

The New York State Department of Health Child & Adult Care Food Program has certified us as a Breast Feeding Friendly Site.

Accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), currently, only 179 centers in NY and our Washington Ave. and SUNY Schenectady locations are the only 2 in Schenectady County. 

The Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) has granted the YWCA Licensing.

Both YWCA NENY Early Learning Centers voluntarily participate in QUALITYstartsNY. 

All of our teachers have degrees or are working on degrees and are required to receive 30 hours of training every two years.
