LYA's Early Childhood programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of young children in the community. Licensed by the Department of Early Education & Care (EEC), the Pre-K and kindergarten offer children from 15 months to 5 years an all-day, year round experiential program in a stimulating, secure and nurturing environment.

For LYA's earliest learners, those from 15 months to 2 years 9 months of age, the program focuses on developing physical, social, cognitive and motor skills. In the Pre-K for 3 and 4-year-old children, the emphasis moves to developing communication and learning skills and nurturing a healthy self-esteem. Pre-math and pre-reading skills are introduced when students are ready. The Kindergarten program is designed to address the needs of individual students and facilitate their transition to early primary education.

Small classes with an excellent student-teacher ratio ensure that each student's particular talents are recognized and encouraged by the supportive staff faculty. Curriculum enrichment in the arts and other areas begins in Pre-K and continues at all grade levels. The outdoor playground allows children to explore and exercise in a protected setting.
