Our Preschool Child Care program provides a safe and nurturing environment for children ages 12 months-5 years of age. We are licensed by the OCDEL. Our program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of the Young Child (NAEYC) and is a Star level 4 through Keystone Stars.
The full day Preschool Child Care program is open year round, from 6:15 am to 6:00 pm for working parents/guardians. Our new half day option is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 am - 11:30 am at our North Y location and will service our children that are 4 years of age. We provide a developmentally appropriate preschool curriculum which emphasizes learning through play. The program promotes the development of physical, cognitive, social and self help skills. The center also offers unique features unlike other child care programs.
Children ages 3-5 participate in weekly swimming, gymnastics and weekly fitness classes. Children ages 1-5 enjoy outdoor play time on age appropriate playground equipment. We provide a morning and afternoon snack, breakfast before 8 am and a nutritious lunch. Family members enjoy special monthly activities which include vocal concerts, field trips and luncheons. Tuition includes all of the above.
The YMCA takes great pride in a highly trained professional child care team. Children receive constant supervision in a warm, nurturing environment. We encourage caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all activities. Teachers will work with families to assist with potty learning at the developmentally appropriate time.
