We offer full day or half day licensed programs for children ages three to five years at Central and West Branch. Our preschool program offers quality care in a safe and supportive environment that fosters the emotional, physical, social and cognitive growth of each child. In addition, your child will develop skills to build character values, self-esteem, friendships, and kindergarten readiness skills.

FULL DAY or HALF DAY PRESCHOOL PROGRAM (ages 3-5)
The three to five-year-old classrooms focus on the growth and development of the whole child: physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Activities and classroom centers are oriented to the child’s interest and developmental levels. Our three to five-year-olds are able to make choices in a variety of areas including art and sensory activities, dramatic play, stories and books, music and movement, fine and large motor development and much more.

Our program builds the foundation and prepares children for those skills needed in Kindergarten. Math, science, language areas, and pre-reading and writing are emphasized. In addition, children learn important classroom skills such as taking turns, sharing and cooperation as well as learning to develop socially acceptable behaviors and positive social relationships through cooperative play.  

YMCA Youth Membership is included in all of our Preschool options.

Our Preschool Curriculum includes the following areas: Language Development, Creative Experience, Fine and Gross Motor Skills, iPad Technology, Music/Movement, Science and Discovery, Dramatic and Sensory Play.

Preschool events include School Pictures, Holiday Parties, Recreational swimming, End-of-Year Pre-K ceremony, Spring Recital, Local Field Trips, and more. Additional YMCA Benefits include Indoor gymnasium, music and dance rooms, after-school enrichment programs, USDA-approved lunches and snacks, 17-acre outdoor pavilion, indoor pool, two secure and safe outdoor play areas, "Let's Move Initiative," and a gymnastics center.In need of financial assistance?
