Dryades YMCA’s Early Childhood Education Center is a Class A State 
licensed program that primarily services parenting teens and working families.

This program is devoted to providing quality and affordable childcare 
services that enhance parental self-sufficiency, reduces the infant mortality rate in New Orleans and provides child care services for teen mothers to ensure that they have the opportunity to continue with their education.

Utilizing a curriculum including reading, math, prewriting skills, art, music, language, recreational activities and supervised field trips, the Early Childhood Development Center provides a well-rounded and diverse learning atmosphere for all of our participants.
