Early Childhood Education
A History of Excellence
Our record as a leader in early childhood education is well-established and continues today.
In 1965, Educational Alliance was chosen to run a national pilot program of Head Start. In 1995, we were one of only 20 providers selected nationally to launch the Early Head Start initative. A few years later, our 14th Street Y launched one of NYC's first 2x2 "separated" programs, where toddlers and their parents gradually learn to feel comfortable separating so the little ones can happily attend preschool classes on their own.
