The Importance of Child Care
Greyston believes that affordable, high quality childcare is a critical support structure enabling low income parents to work. For children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, the Greyston Childcare Center combines high-quality and nurturing care with an emphasis on school preparation through the Creative Curriculum program. The Center is one of just a few in the area accredited by the prestigious National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Greyston’s Child Care Center
Greyston’s Child Care Center is located at 68 Warburton Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10701. The Center is open from 7:30am – 6pm, Monday through Friday and is currently licensed for 96 children between the ages of six weeks to five years old. Our Center provides “fun with a purpose” – educational and recreational programs that support social, academic, and personal growth in a fun, safe, and caring environment. The Center has been continually awarded the prestigious National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accreditation since 2002.
The Child Care Center’s dedicated staff utilizes an array of evidence-based practices to ensure that all children receive high-quality care and reach their goals for educational, social, and emotional growth. An example: the “Ages and Stages (ASQ)” assessment tool, a developmental and social-emotional screening for young children, is a highly reliable and valid methodology that looks at strengths and trouble spots, educates parents about developmental milestones, and incorporates parents’ expert knowledge about their children. This tool is linguistically and culturally sensitive and evaluates children in five areas — communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social. Staff use results to develop appropriate learning plans and, if necessary, interventions designed to help children remediate deficiencies that may impede their ability to succeed socially and academically.
Parents as Partners
The Center has a proud history of encouraging parents to play an integral part in their children’s education: each week, the Center’s Parent Support Groups meets to discuss best practices in child care and to recruit volunteers for help within the classroom. In addition to regularly scheduled parents’ meetings, the Center hosts a large and active group focused on strengthening the relationship between fathers and their children.
