Benefits of Preschools

Preschool is a place where your child can have fun and learn. However, your child will also:

Learn communication skills: Children often struggle with being able to communicate effectively with their peers as well as adults. During preschool, they will have the chance to interact with children their age and adults to learn valuable communication skills.

Learn to be independent: Preschool is an important part of learning to be independent. Your child will have certain responsibilities and be expected to meet certain expectations. By following this routine, they will learn to be responsible and take care of themselves.

Learn cognitive skills: When children constantly learn, preschool presents opportunities for specific growth and learning. During the activities they participate in, they will be challenged in areas they may not have encountered before.

Learn curiosity: All children are curious, and preschool takes that natural curiosity to develop a sense of learning. Teachers act as guides to foster your child’s curiosity and lead them to seek answers and understanding.

Your child is sure to grow and learn during preschool, and our preschool center provides an excellent opportunity for that growth.


Here at the YMCA, your child’s safety is our top priority. We cared for the children of healthcare workers for 10 weeks. That’s 50 days of frequent, vigilant cleaning and sanitizing efforts, keeping children safe and well cared for. We will put this essential experience into play as we re-launch our Before and After School Enrichment program with enhanced cleaning protocols and safety standards.
