The 14th Street Y’s Parenting, Family, and Early Childhood Center, located in the East Village, provides families inspiration, connection, and finding meaning in their lives though community. Many young families initially attend Expectant Parent groups, a New Parents Stroll-In class or a swim class. Popular infant and toddler classes include "Magical Movement with Mik," "Rock-a Baby," "Messy Play," "Little Bookworms."
Drop-in classes, such as Indoor Playground and Sing Along are perfect for those who want to drop-in without committing to a weekly class. The 2x2 program is a gradually separating program for children 22 to 34 months. Children engage in art, music, yoga, story time, cooking, creative movement, and imaginative play.
The Y's Preschool has small class sizes, sunny open classrooms with access to facilities including a pool, gymnasium, and play roof. Children engage in art, movement and music, and storytelling.
