Planting seeds of success in our youth

These programs strive to assist children in gaining a positive sense of self while engaging in activities that stimulate natural curiosity. Children are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes fill very quickly so register early.

2 Year Olds

YWCA Playroom Plus

As a first time school experience and with twelve children and three teachers in the classroom, Playroom Plus is able to offer the participants individualized or small group attention. The two year olds are encouraged in the basics of group socialization. They learn to verbalize their needs and listen to others. Sharing, cooperation and independence are all incorporated into classroom activities that promote exploration and discovery. Potty training is not required but is encouraged. Your child must be two years old on or before December 1st of the year your child will attend this program.

3-4 Year Olds

YWCA Preschool

This program offers a hand’s on approach to learning through real-life experiences. Children investigate various topics while incorporating pre-writing, pre-reading, math and science activities. While expanding their social skills, children learn to negotiate with friends and express themselves verbally. As each child becomes more proficient in accomplishing age-appropriate readiness skills, he/she gains a sense of independence. Your child must be no younger than three years old on or before December 1st of the year your child will attend this program.
