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 Pre-Kindergarten and M-W-F Afternoon Pre-Kindergarten – classes 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 crafts and activities will offer meaningful experiences in your child’s exciting learning endeavors.
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 ply 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, your 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.
