The Kings Bay Y at North Williamsburg is a caring, joyous community that embraces the rich diversity and unique talents of our children and their families. We are committed to providing our students with a learning environment that nurtures their curiosity, self-esteem and academic and social growth. Our aim is to provide opportunities for children to develop a lifelong passion for learning, to get to know and love themselves as individuals and to work as members of a caring, cooperative learning community.


We are a progressive school based on the Bank Street/Reggio Emilia educational philosophies. Our lively, hands-on curriculum has been thoughtfully developed through direct observation of students' interests and individual needs. We strive to provide opportunities for each child to develop cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally at a rate that is most appropriate for him or her.
