F.M. Kirby Children’s Center
The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA is the largest high-quality, full-service early childhood education provider in Morris County. We are a three star Grow NJ Kids rated school and were awarded a Golden Acorn Award for Excellence from Preschool Advantage this year. Our educational and engaging curriculum creates a stress-free learning environment in a social setting. With full-time and part-time programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children, and specialty programs like Talking Tots, students grow with us as we guide them through every age and every stage of childhood. Individualized learning plans for every child and an emphasis on social skills create happy students with a love of learning for years to come. With ongoing enrollment, families can enroll in Kirby any time of the year. Teacher longevity, child-centered curriculum, STEM programming at every age, a YMCA membership, and a sprawling campus, complete with five playgrounds, away from busy streets make Kirby an ideal location for early childhood education.
As a former elementary school, the Kirby Center facility is specifically designed for children. Located on almost 3 acres of property, the Center has a full-size gym, full kitchen that serves snacks and meals developed by a staff nutritionist, a registered nurse on staff and five state-of-the-art playgrounds to serve all age groups.
The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center is a member of the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and a participating partner in the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey’s Healthy U program which teaches children the importance of physical activity and healthful nutrition. Financial assistance may be available for eligible families.
