YMCA Discovery Preschool
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life. Because of the Y Preschool, kids have the opportunity to be creative, explore their environment and develop problem solving skills through self discovery and teacher assisted activities. At the Y, kids learn their ABC's, to share, sportsmanship, and most importantly, learn how to be themselves. Those qualities make for confident kids today, contributing and engaged adults tomorrow. In addition, all our children receive swim lessons!
