Our licensed preschool program provides children with a developmentally appropriate program in a self-initiated, hands-on discovery environment that allows children to explore, examine, manipulate, and discover while thinking independently and solving problems. We recognize that each child progresses through the same stages of development but at his or her own rate. Our program gives us the flexibility to accommodate these different rates through the use of learning centers.
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 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, babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world and make friends and learn new skills. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
We believe your child should be prepared to start kindergarten ready to succeed. Our Preschool programs provide an educational environment that is a friendly, positive, and caring place to help each student discover his or her own unique gifts. Our engaging curriculum helps children reach developmental milestones and prepares them for academic learning. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.
