Research in the field of early childhood education has shown that experiences provided in the early years help form the foundations for cognitive, emotional and physical development needed for later learning. The West New York Early Childhood Program is committed to meeting the individual needs of our diverse urban student population by providing a nurturing, harmonious atmosphere which supports each child's inherent love of learning and developing that potential by providing a high quality comprehensive early education program.
