Since its founding in 1979, the New York League for Early Learning (NYL) has provided services and programs for children from birth to age five and their families. To strengthen its work for children with developmental disabilities and learning delays, NYL became a member of the YAI/NIPD Network in 1992.
Today, NYL's highly acclaimed, progressive education and cutting-edge therapies build brighter futures for thousands of children. NYL has been recognized for its excellence by the New York State Education Department.
Serving nearly 2000 children daily, NYL's staff of more than 1000 highly trained professionals create safe, supportive learning environments in early intervention and preschool settings. NYL's full range of outstanding, culturally appropriate offerings are presented in many languages and are available at various sites: in the home, at community-based centers and at schools throughout the boroughs.
