Preschool is more than just a place where kids learn their numbers and ABC’s. Our Teachers work closely with all three Washington County School Corporations to ensure that our lesson plans meet the requirements for the Kindergarten School Readiness Checklists! At the Y, we teach some sign language through words and songs to help work on our motor skills, have daily devotionals, and offer interaction with a smart board. The YMCA Preschool is focused on preparing each child for kindergarten and fostering an environment which promotes socializing and building friendships with others. Your student will have the opportunity to learn, grow, and be ahead of the pack for that first step into elementary school. By giving your child a head start on their education now, you will be providing them with a leg up on their future! Let our experienced, caring, and nurturing teachers help make a difference in your child’s life.
