PRESCHOOL...ages 3-4

The YMCA Preschool integrates the Y facilities and programs to combine both education and recreation for a stimulating preschool experience. Traditional preschool concepts are emphasized (number/letter recognition, social skills, arts and crafts) 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.

The Auburn YMCA Preschool offers a 5-day morning option (8:45-11:45 am) or a full-day option (8:45 am -1:45 pm)  for 3-year-old children. 4- year old children can attend a 5-full day option (9:00 am -2:00 pm).

Registration is open.
