F.M.Kirby Children`s Center - Madison Area YMCA
The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA is state-renowned childhood development center serving families from the area.
Care is available for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school age children.
A Preschool, Academic Kindergarten, Kindergarten Wrap Around and Before and After School program for first through sixth graders are all designed to challenge students in a fun atmosphere
Our age-appropriate developmental curriculum is taught by caring teachers with an average lead teacher tenure of almost 12 years. Our child/teacher ratios exceed New Jersey state requirements. A full time Registered Nurse is also part of our staff.
Located in a former elementary school, the Kirby Center features spacious classrooms, a full size gym, a cafeteria that serves snacks and meals through the Child Care Food Program and five playgrounds to serve all age groups.
Our fleet of school busses driven by our CDL staff provides free transportation for children enrolled at Kirby. Kindergarten through 6th grade students from public and parochial schools in Madison, Chatham and Florham Park are transported to/from Kirby. We also transport students to and from religious education classes at St. Vincent Martyr, as well as children who are enrolled in specialty classes at the Family Center.
