In order to be eligible for the Member fee you must have a Family Membership.

Due to its popularity our Preschool does have a waiting list. You can place your child’s name on the list at any time during the year!

YMCA Preschool – Quality program serving the community for over 30 years!

Our YMCA Preschool was awarded the Mission-Drive Quality Promise Award from the National YMCA of the USA!

M-W-F Morning Preschool – Class offers your child growth and stimulation in all areas of development: physical, language, social, emotional, and creativity.  The weekly themes, Manuscript Writing, and developmentally appropriate activities will offer meaningful experiences in your child’s exciting learning endeavors.

M-W-F Afternoon Pre-Kindergarten – Class offers an enriching experience designed to challenge individual development.  Extra pre-academic skills for each weekly theme and the Modern Manuscript Writing will be presented to challenge your child’s developing writing skills.

T-TH Preschool – Children will be given the opportunity to interact with people outside the family and learn how to relate and socialize within a group.  With a wide range of learning experiences and materials, children can choose their own activities, and work and play independently or in small groups at their own pace and ability level.

T-TH Afternoon Active Learning – is a fun opportunity for your child to experience social interaction, learning and exploration through active games and play while you stay healthy by using the YMCA facility or just taking the afternoon off.  Active Learning will take place in our new indoor playground as well as in the gym, multi-purpose room and outdoors.  Children will need to bring their own healthy snack/drink to our Afternoon Active Learning Program.  

Lunch Bunch  – If your child attends Preschool all day, you will need to be a member of our Active Kids Program.  Lunch Bunch Kids attend Preschool in the morning, have their lunch in the Active Kids Room and then return to their afternoon class. Active Kids Members are welcome to use the Active Kids Program before and after preschool.
