Preschool

Preschool

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our child care, afterschool and Amazing Kids Club programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other. At the Y, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves.

The core of our curriculum is to balance both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. All of this is done through well-planned learning and activity centers including Library (language), Blocks (construction), Music and Movement, Art, Sand & Water (sensory), Outdoor Learning, Cooking, Science and Math.

Each day brings new learning opportunities as children are provided a framework within which they will make both self-directed and guided choices. The main difference between the programs listed below is the amount of curriculum time the program allows to reach curriculum goals and observe a child’s progress.

Children must be a minimum of 2 years and 8 months on their start date to enroll in preschool. 

A $50 non-refundable annual registration fee is due at the time of registration.
