Preschool & Pre-K

Consider us your extended family

The Haverhill YMCA is committed to nurturing the potential of every child as they begin their journey to become life long learners. Our program provides a supportive environment to meet each child’s developmental needs in a setting that encourages active learning. Children receive guidance and support from a warm, caring staff. Through open-ended activities children learn and play as they build essential early language, social and motor skills.

  • Full day and half-day options
  • Low child-to-staff ratios
  • Licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care
  • Healthy snacks and physical activity

Creative Curriculum & Enrichment

Our qualified educators use Creative Curriculum, which is research based, addresses all curriculum areas and meets national and state standards. Teachers facilitate discussions and role playing to help children develop social skills needed to work through conflict and develop strong friendships with peers.

  • Swim Lessons
  • Gymnastics, sports and yoga
  • Outdoor exploration and play

Your Child's Y Experience

Y Preschool programs provide a safe, wholesome environment in which children can learn to communicate, cooperate and care about each other. Preschoolers use their curiosity and imagination to become creative thinkers. As active learners, they work on increasing the mastery of peer interaction and cooperative play. A positive self-image is developed as children begin to become proficient in the areas of cognitive and physical development. Learning centers, rich with materials, enhance the curriculum themes encouraging children to use their innate sense of exploration as they further investigate their interests.
