YMCA Preschool

Help your child enjoy the fun of learning in our well-rounded preschool program! In this multi-day program, preschoolers will be introduced to physical activity, literacy, mathematics and science through play-based, progressive learning experiences.

Your child will have fun in the preschool room participating in story time, art, drama and music activities, and will enjoy lots of active time in YMCA spaces while working on gross motor, spatial awareness and movement fundamentals. Our preschool program supports children to build positive relationships and gain confidence with early learning concepts.

Children require running shoes to participate safely in this program, and must be able to use the washroom independently. Please bring a healthy nut-free snack from home.
