A child-centered, holistic approach
The teachers and staff at the Women’s Community Y in Leavenworth, KS, are guided by The Creative Curriculum, which blends their years of early education experience with a curriculum that is content-rich and grounded in meaningful teacher-child interaction. We pride ourselves on a low student-to-teacher ratio, maintaining standards established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Classes have a one-to-seven teacher to student ratio. Our teachers develop age-appropriate activities that introduce and strengthen academic and social skills.
Beyond the classroom
In addition to the basics, we offer our students a range of gross-motor and creative opportunities, including music and movement, cooking activities for building science and math skills, and outdoor play on our own playground.
We strive to include enrichment activities that extend our students’ knowledge and understanding of the world outside the classroom. During the school year, our older preschool students take field trips to a fire station, dentist’s office, and other local places of interest. Special guests may come in to read to the students or engage them in activities such as making candles or puppets.
We are also committed to parent education. For interested parents, we offer workshops to help them better understand and support their child’s development.
