Y Preschool

Y Preschool

Bright Beginnings Start Here

At the Y, we believe that children learn best through play.

Our safe environment gives kids the perfect place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships plus cultivate fine and gross motor skills. We plan our classes to develop each child’s self-esteem and strong image of self-worth. In every class, we encourage children to explore, ask questions and solve problems.

Program Goals

  1. To lay a foundation for school-ready literacy and math skills.
  2. To encourage children to learn with, and from, each other.
  3. To teach language skills to non-English speaking children.
  4. To provide a quality education at an affordable price.
