OUR PHILOSOPHY

Through our Pre-K programs, we are responding to the complex needs of today’s families and acting upon our commitment to kids, families, and communities. We believe that daily practice and interaction with children must reflect the YMCA goals for child care:

  • To offer a safe, caring, and fun environment for all children
  • To support and strengthen the family unit
  • To develop new skills
  • To have fun!

YMCA programs provide opportunities for children to develop and grow as they learn through socialization, exploration, choice and creative play.

CHARACTER-BASED CURRICULUM

YMCA Pre-K will develop and maintain an environment for positive learning experiences which will encourage children to grow socially, emotionally and physically using lessons based on our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
