Offering full and part-time opportunities, the Y's Preschool is dedicated to providing young children with a developmentally appropriate, year-round preschool education.


Our program encourages exploration, creativity, and self-expression through developmentally appropriate activities. Child-guided learning experiences support healthy spiritual, intellectual and physical development. Y staff portrays positive role models while providing care, which is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s needs.


Preschool Staff 

The Y Preschool program is successful because of the extraordinary people who make it all happen each day. All staff members meet or exceed state licensing guidelines and follow our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Creative Curriculum 

Literacy, language development, mathematics, science, gross and fine motor skills are integrated into the curriculum. Our program encourages exploration, creativity and self-expression through developmentally appropriate activities. The Y sets the standard in early-learning education by including swim lessons twice a week into each child's tuition, creating well-rounded kids.
