I'm not sure about this place. My nephew was a 3rd grader there. I finally convinced my brother to take him out. When I would pick him up I always heard the teachers yelling at the kids. My nephew said they always yell. I worked with children in Arizona. Teachers like that would NEVER be hired there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many times I picked up my nephew.

NYC is a safe, fun after school environment for my sons. I especially appreciate the time the children devote to homework. My children usually finish their homework before they come home. NYC has a variety of activities. They have a large gym for kids that like sports and a large game room. Although this is a large facility they do a good job of segregating children into different age groups. Supervision is also good. Most of the staff are also parents that are active in the community.

I first found NYC in the summer of 2007. My daughter and I went for a tour and she and I both felt very comfortable with the teachers, structure as well as activities available to her. The hours are great, the summer care is amazing with field trips and all sorts of activities. The care my daughter is given is much to what she can expect at home. It keeps the structure for her and allows me to feel comfortable in having her attend. The entire staff has been extremely helpful and willing to meet my childs needs. I highly recommend NYC!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many of the children. They all seem happy to be a part of the NYC group.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing my child happy, meeting other parents and students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

100% professional and knowledgable

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

only enhance the lives of the children
