Way to Grow is Open for Your Child Care Needs
Affordable and accessible child care is a critical issue facing families, communities, and the workforce. Recognizing that child care is not just a women’s issue, Governor Cuomo assembled the Child Care Availability Task Force because it is a societal and economic issue that touches every family, in every community, regardless of neighborhood or economic status. We urge you to review this report to find out ways you can best access the state’s child care system. [READ REPORT]
CULTURAL IMMERSION PROGRAM
Way to Grow Child Care Learning Center is proud to announce our “Cultural Immersion Program” where three days a week our preschool and pre-k program will be learning to speak Chinese. The first three to four years of life are considered the best time for children to learn a second language. The benefits of learning a second language in preschool are numerous, and bound to positively impact children’s future, academic, and professional lives. Second language acquisition is tightly linked to increased performance in areas of social and academic development such as verbal communication, mathematical development and reasoning skills. It is also linked to increasing young children’s cultural awareness and understanding of cultural differences.
Move over Flat Stanley!
Flat Miss Carol and Flat Miss Erin were recently sent out to Way to Grow children who are homebound with their families due to the pandemic. The children love getting weekly cards that help them keep in contact with their friends and teachers. And we enjoy getting pictures from them showing the adventures of Flat Miss Carol and Flat Miss Erin!

Cindy Motta is a 12-year-old aspiring artist who attends our Before and After School Program. When it comes time for college, she wants to major in art. Cindy has a strong interest in fashion design and has already come up with some original clothing designs. This is the first mural that Cindy has painted for us and we look forward to more one-of-a-kind creations. We hope Cindy continues to live out her dream and become a great designer. We’ll be able to say that “we knew her when”!
