Pre-School Programs


The Y is dedicated to providing young children with preschool education. Our programs encourage  exploration, creativity and self expression through developmentally appropriate activities. Child guided learning experiences support healthy social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. YMCA staff portray positive role models while providing care, which is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s needs.

At Discovery Kids Preschool, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.  That’s why our preschool is staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of children, the need children have to feel connected and supported, and their need in trying new things. We base our lesson plans on Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards. Our half-day program includes creative learning, music and movement, pre-writing and writing, reading readiness, arts and crafts, centers and more. Teachers plan activities and learning centers based on the interests and development of the children in their class to properly prepare them for Kindergarten.
