At the Y, we believe that children learn best through play. That’s why our Preschool Programs are the place for kids ages 1 through 6 to experience the magic of childhood.

Our early childhood educators provide a warm and secure atmosphere with five areas of focus to help kids meet developmental milestones:  

  • Learning 
  • Life Skills 
  • Healthy Habits 
  • Socialization 
  • Fine & Gross Motor Skills 

To make these milestones accessible, our classes are planned 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. 
It’s a fun but structured way for kids to do what they enjoy best: play while growing into their full potential. Along with an emphasis on learning, we have modified our preschool to place health and safety at the forefront.  

My Y Scholarships are available based on household income. Please see our Sales and Service team to learn more.

Visit Preschool Central for all the information you need to help you prepare and experience a wonderful school year, filled with the magic of childhood.
