YMCA Preschool

LEARN, GROW & THRIVE


At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.

We implement Creative Curriculum, which supports learning through play and developmentally appropriate activities that foster social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical development. The curriculum identifies skills and concepts important for preschool children to acquire in each area: literacy, math, science, social studies, technology and the arts.

The YMCA Early Learning Center provides quality and affordable full-day care and education for your child, ages 3 months to five years. Contact our program director to see classrooms, meet staff and more.


AGES SERVED:

INFANT & TODDLER CENTER: Ages 3 Months - 3 Years

Our Infant and Toddler Center cares for children as young as 3 months old up until the age 3.  Our staff of highly trained, certified care givers are trained in early learning and development to insure your child is both physically and mentally stimulated during the day.  As children progress from infants to toddlers, they will continually be challenged to meet developmental goals preparing them for Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) and Preschool.
