Early Childhood Education at the Y... 

Franklin Lakes Early Learning Center

At the Wyckoff Family YMCA, health and wellness are so much more than just fitness and sports. The Y is a connected community resource which is vital in helping all people develop in spirit, mind, and body while addressing all areas of an individual’s well-being. 

Members of our Y Family discover all kinds of programs, wellness opportunities and services far beyond the realm of “day care.” In addition to the benefit of the Y’s high standards of Childhood Curriculum and Education, your child can enjoy a swim or dance lesson along with his or her classmates, take a field trip to the Police Station to learn about our community heroes, collect food for those in need during the holidays, and so much more. The Y’s emphasis on Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility carries far beyond the classroom--it pervades everything we do!

Enrolling in Y Childcare connects families to a wide web of friends, networks, and support through the Wyckoff Family YMCA community. Y families represent a diverse and inclusive collection of cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs. These differences create classrooms where acceptance develops as children learn to practice tolerance and promote equality amongst themselves.
