Full Time Child Care
Our 12 month program, licensed by the state of New Jersey, is held at our Grand Street facility, operating Monday - Friday, from 6:45am to 6:00pm. We provide warm and nurturing care for children ages 3 months-5 years, implementing the Creative Curriculum. Staff is trained in CPR and First Aid.
Enrichment classes are offered to all students (infants - pre k), and are included in monthly tuition fees. Each week the children are exposed to: literature from Story Time; fine arts with Music & Art classes, and develop their gross motor skills with Gym. The preschool/pre k program include swim lessons (child must be toilet trained)-taught by the Y's Aquatics Department.
Weather permitting, neighborhood walks and outdoor play give your child fresh-air daily. During inclement weather, our FULL size gym gives the children plenty of room to exercise. We teach the children healthy habits with daily exercise and offer healthy snacks twice a day, along with milk & bottled water for lunch/snack time. In keeping with the Y's goals, we encourage character development through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
The Child Care program also offers parttime care. This is a great benefit for parents who are able to work from home a couple of days per week, yet need child care on the days that they are needed in the office. Two or three days options are available. Our caring staff creates a welcoming environment, making the part-time transition a smooth one for both; the parents and child.
Please call 908-322-7600 for more information, part-time availability/rates or to set up an appointment for a tour of our Child Care program/ facility.

Drop Off Care
Take advantage of the newest addition to our Child Care program by dropping off your child for a morning of safe, age-appropriate play. Now you can run errands or just take some time for yourself, enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your child is happy and well cared for.
Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the ages of 3 months and 5 years will benefit from our strict adherence to state-regulated staff/child ratios for each age group. Socialization skills come naturally as children enjoy toys, books, and outdoor playtime, and share a mid-morning snack with new friends.
