From the Director:
"Curriculum based on cognitive and creative skills building." Extracted from YMCA Mission's website, 2006.
The YMCA preschool provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children from 2 to 5 years of age. Children experience a curriculum rich in cognitive and creative skill building. The preschool is set in a culturally diverse environment that serves to strengthen each child's sense of self. Realizing the importance of each step in your child's learning experiences, our preschool is divided into three classrooms to encourage physical, emotional, and cognitive growth appropriate for his/her developmental needs and has a large, newly renovated play yard. We are licensed by the State of California and have Spanish, English, and Arabic speaking staff on-site.
