As the Paterson Public School District resumes in-person schooling, most schools and childcare programs are operating on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. CAMP YDPs Learning Lab is a new program that provides free child care options for children from K through 5th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.


  • Learning Labs are operated on site at CAMP YDP from 8AM - 3PM, MONDAY - FRIDAY

  • Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities 

  • Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities 

  • Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools

  • Health and safety are the top priority at Learning Bridges programs.

  • All programs will adopt “High Five” practices, which are:

  • Wearing masks and daily health screening for children and staff, 

  • Frequent hand washing,

  • Cleaning and disinfecting program space and common areas,

  • Physical distancing, and, 

  • "Cohorting" that maintains group stability from school to program and small group size.
