The full day Preschool program is open year round, from 6:15 am to 6:00 pm for working parents/guardians.  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.
