CAPITAL CAMPAIGN 

Bringing the Gaynor Early Learning Center to Life


Together we can achieve the dream of bringing a one-of-a-kind, world-class preschool to Naples. Our dream is to have a holistic model of care for children that includes health and wellbeing as well as early education and preparation for a life of learning. 

The upcoming collaboration entitled the Children's Center for Pediatrics & Early Education was designed through a collaborative effort with early education experts, medical physicians and therapy professionals.

Outlook for Success

The Y’s plan to serve the Greater Naples community includes expanding their footprint and moving towards a new world-class model that can be duplicated by others. The vision for the new school encompasses pediatric medical professionals, social behavioral caregivers, therapists and certificated instructors who facilitate teaching through a creative curriculum that aligns with National accreditation. The YMCA’s new school, entitled as the “Children’s Center for Pediatrics & Early Education” was designed through a collaborative effort with early education experts, medical physicians and therapy professionals.    


A World-Class Model

  • Custom-designed classrooms to enhance the learning process by eliminating distractions and emphasizing creativity.
  • Comprehensive creative curriculum for infants through preschoolers focused on achieving the best school-readiness rates in the state of Florida.

  • Observation windows in each classroom for assessment and evaluation.
  • Direct access to pediatric and therapeutic services in the next building.
  • Continued education resources and meeting spaces to encourage teachers, parents and community members to progress professionally in their field.
  • State-of-the-art safety and surveillance system.
