New early childhood education program moves to Greenwood

Young Child Academy, an early childhood development program, has recently moved to the neighborhood, in the former Amistad School building on 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. After operating for over 20 years on lower Queen Anne, the school is now enrolling for the 2023 school year in their newly renovated space. From YCA:

“We are excited to be a part of the Greenwood community and look forward to operating our school within this vibrant neighborhood. Young Child Academy enrolls students ranging in ages from Infant (5 months+) to Pre-Kindergarten (5 years).

At Young Child Academy, we aim to promote learning by providing a developmentally appropriate program that balances play with structured learning opportunities. Emergent literacy is nurtured through a language-rich curriculum that uses quality literature to engage learners and encourage phonological awareness. We understand that involving students in dance, drama, music, and art has a positive impact on brain development. Therefore, we incorporate daily arts-based activities to cultivate student creativity, while developing an awareness and appreciation for the visual and performing arts. Daily foreign language and culture classes expose our students to new opportunities and skills at a time when they are most receptive. 

At Young Child Academy we acknowledge the artistic and cultural wealth in our community, and we believe that parents are ideal resources to help tap that wealth. Therefore, we welcome opportunities to develop relationships within our community and we encourage family and neighborhood participation.”

YCA is currently open for enrollment and has immediate openings in their preschool classrooms. Hours of operation are from 7:00 am to 5:45 pm and their new address is 9218 Greenwood Ave N. Virtual tours as well as in-person tours of their facility are provided upon request and availability.
