PRESCHOOL ages 3-4

The YMCA Preschool integrates the Y facilities and programs to combine education and recreation for a stimulating preschool experience. Traditional preschool concepts (number/letter recognition, social skills, arts and crafts) are emphasized, combined with weekly swim lessons, music lessons, and gym time. We plan field trips and family events and enjoy having parents join us when they can.
