Preschool Child Care
NOW ENROLLING FOR FALL!
YMCA Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs provide a safe, wholesome environment in which children can learn to communicate, cooperate and care about each other. Our low staff-to-child ratios give your preschooler one-on-one interaction with teachers.
Our Y provides hundreds of families across the North Shore with high quality educational opportunities to give your child the best possible start towards elementary school. When your child takes part in our Preschool or Kindergarten Readiness program, they will have a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Our robust curriculum in our Pre-K program prepares children to become independent learners and develop self-confidence for sharing in a classroom setting. Through curriculum themes based on the interests of older children we focus on the areas of pre-reading, math and science skill development. Children are immersed in social interactions with peers and adults, giving them the tools they need to succeed in and out of the school environment.
Enrichment Included! Our YMCA education programs also include age appropriate enrichment activities like swimming, gymnastics, sports, fitness, dance, music and outdoor play. We are committed to the physical well being of all our children and provide weekly activities based on age and developmental levels. All of these enrichment activities are included in the weekly tuition.
Monday - Friday 7:00am to 6:00pm
