Exploring Your World

Exploring Your World: A Preschool for Everyone

AccessCNY’s, Exploring Your World (EYW) preschool offers a wide variety of developmentally appropriate learning activities addressing the individual strengths and needs of all children.

For over 30 years, our inclusionary, multi-cultural, and family-oriented program has provided a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed for children. We offer a uniquely designed program that implements a balance between structured learning experiences and play. Our belief in a whole child approach to teaching and learning enriches the program.


EYW’s curriculum is focused on preparing students for kindergarten, with attention to New York State preschool core curriculum standards while supporting all areas of child development, including:

  • Language
  • Cognition
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Sensory integration
  • Social and emotional needs

Each day provides opportunities for art, music, literacy, free play, gym/playground time, and creative activities. A nutritious snack is also provided. Daily activities promote growth in all areas of child development.
