The Childers Family YMCA is a Christian Preschool. Our daily schedule will include bible lessons, prayer, religious songs, and other Christian based activities. Our religious activities are non-denominational. Our preschool does not receive any state funding. The revenue needed to support and operate the YMCA Preschool is generated through tuition paid by the parents and donations received.

Activities for your child include

  • Creative play – Music
  • Block building
  • Dramatic play
  • Motor skill exercises

We are licensed through Bright from the Start Early Care and Learning.  Our teachers have over 75 combined years of early childcare experience.

Our program is current and uses the best practices available for teaching and guiding our two and three year olds. We have age appropriate toys to stimulate creative learning in our toddlers and three year old students.

The YMCA preschool participates in Georgia’s Quality Rated program.

Quality Rated is a systemic approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early education and school‐age care programs. Similar to rating               systems for other service related industries, Quality Rated assigns a quality rating (one star, two star, or three star) to early education and school‐age care programs that meet a set of defined program standards. By participating in Georgia’s voluntary Quality Rated, early education and school‐age care programs embark on a path of continuous quality improvement.

Quality Rated provides opportunities for Georgia to:

  • Identify indicators that enhance children’s development and promote school readiness.
  • Increase quality of early care and education services.
  • Increase families’ understanding and demand for higher quality early care and education.
  • Increase professional development opportunities, benchmarks, and rewards for a range of early care and education practitioners and providers.
