Whitney Young Early Childhood Center, following the Reggio Emilia philosophy, seeks to ensure student achievement by providing a nurturing environment in which all children are valued, respected and encouraged to construct knowledge through guided exploration and social interaction as they discover the joy of learning. The school is fully accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. 

Parents receive a daily e-mail with details and pictures about their child’s day. In collaboration with Discovery Education, Whitney Young is  building a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) culture that inspires and cultivates the next generation of problem solvers,  inventors and leaders.
