WE HELP CHILDREN GROW

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

Our preschool programs integrate purposeful and intentionally planned activities that are designed to be fun and engaging while teaching children valuable skills.

We nurture development by providing a safe 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.

Visit Preschool Central for all the information you need to help you prepare for and experience a wonderful school year.

DEVELOPMENTAL MILESTONES
