Preschool

For our children. For our Future.

The Y Difference

The YMCA Preschool fills a child’s day with opportunities to explore the wonders of their world, giving them experiences that help them grow and develop into confident, caring, happy individuals. As with any YMCA program, the preschool is grounded in the YMCA mission and program objectives. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body.

Our Curriculum

Our State Licensed Preschool Program is designed with developmentally appropriate activities that stimulate a child’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth. The curriculum ensures children receive a learning experience while being engaged with the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. Children develop skills for Kindergarten readiness and a passion for learning.

Our Staff

Teachers are hired with education and experience in the early childhood field. They provide a warm and caring environment in which children are encouraged to explore and grow, while feeling safe and secure.
