CHILDREN AGES 3 to 5 YEARS

Program Hours: Differ by location, please call for information on specific sites.

The Preschool program offers a warm, safe and secure environment for your child to grow and learn. Our caring staff guide each child through experiences that focus on their mental and physical development.

Our Preschool program incorporates the Developmental-Interaction Approach to learning. This philosophy stresses the inseparability of the child’s emotional life from his or her intellectual and physical development. Children’s understanding of information is carefully documented and represented in many forms. Portfolios are maintained by staff as a means of assessing children’s areas of strength and need.

In the Preschool program, social experiences are viewed as the key to later academic success. We consider it vital that children learn to be aware of their emotions, to identify and discuss them, become aware of their needs and be able to negotiate resolutions with other children and caregivers.

Registration for the YMCA Toddler Care is ongoing on a space-available basis.
