Butler Nursery School of St. John's Episcopal Church, Tuckahoe

100 Underhill St., Yonkers, NY

Starting at $295/mo

At Butler Nursery School, we believe that children thrive in an age appropriate program within a safe and nurturing environment. We offer a curriculum designed to foster their growth, stimulate their curiosity, and challenge their mental and physical needs. We encourage the development of socialization skills and the building of self-esteem, while respecting each child's uniqueness as an individual. The classrooms at Butler Nursery School are bright and cheerful. We have a large, mural indoor playroom and a well-equipped outdoor playground. Play is an important aspect of child development. Through play, children explore the world around them by learning how to socialize with others, expressing feelings through language, testing muscular skills, and developing math concepts. We enrich this play through reading, music, art, cooking, and dramatic play.

We offer half day programs to children age 2-4. Programs are offered 2, 3, and 5 days a week (days offered varies based on age). We do not require that a child be potty-trained before entering school. The school year runs from mid-September to early June, and a six-week summer camp is also available.

Some daily activities include free play, music, snack time, playground time, painting, story time, dress-up, circle time, and water play. Throughout the year, Butler holds special events such as our International Dinner, Holiday Festival, Christmas Tableau, and Easter Chapel Services.

Butler is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in Northeast Yonkers. The Butler Nursery School is a program of St. John's Episcopal Church, Tuckahoe, and is founded on the highest Christian and educational standards. We share the teachings of Jesus Christ through stories, holiday observances, grace before snacks, and child-oriented chapel services. We are a proud member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools. We welcome families of all religious faiths to join us! We are pleased to boast a diverse student body.

Jenny's Loving Daycare Inc.'s Photo

Jenny's Loving Daycare Inc.

9 Dickinson, Yonkers, NY

Costimate: $243/wk

My name is Jenny and I have been associated with daycares since 1999. I have four of my own children, the youngest being 14. I began running a daycare because I needed the service for my own children. There was no one to pick up my second youngest child from the bus stop while I was home with my youngest child.

The goal of Jenny's Loving Daycare INC. is to provide your child with a nurturing, loving, and caring environment. My facility and staff are MAT certified, being that they are able to administer medication in the case that your child may be sick. There are guidelines that we follow as of January 5, 2005 for administering medication. For your child's safety we do conduct monthly fire drills and practice with the children on where to meet in a case of a fire and how to safely leave the facility if one does occur.

My facility also provides a very stimulating curriculum for all ages. For infants, story time, floor play and music time is used to stimulate their minds and bodies. They are given toys that consist of different textures for their sense of touch. Young toddlers have music, story time and arts & craft time. They are encouraged to color using their imagination and take part in projects appropriate for their age. Toddlers begin practicing writing their names, numbers and alphabets. We also encourage them to participate in projects that are age appropriate. They are able to paint, use chalk and even attempt to cut out their own pictures for their projects. School age children receive after school help with their homework and when there is no homework assigned then they are able to create their own projects to take home.

We encourage active play, when the weather permits, the children have outdoor play. They are able to play with basket balls, draw with chalk and play on the backyard play-set. My staff and I encourage your children to grow and develop using their own mental capabilities with our guidance.

My facility is filled with lots of love, kindness, compassion, nurturing, cleanliness, fairness and learning. I would not expect any less for my own children and would not provide any less for your loved ones.
