Summer is all but gone, and fall is upon us, which means another year of Y Preschool is about to start. The Y provides high quality licensed preschool during the traditional calendar school year.
Statistics show that a large number of children from low-income environments reach kindergarten unprepared and that they continue to fall behind in school without proper interventions. That “gap” is known as the Achievement Gap. The Y, a longtime leader in youth development, is working to improve the educational readiness, engagement and outcomes for the country’s children, in partnership with schools and families.
The 2016-2017 Y Preschool kicks off on September 12th and we are proud to say we are currently at capacity.
At the Y we will continue to strive to enrich children’s lives through quality educational programs.
I am a preschooler. My favorite things to do at the Y are play in the kid’s kitchen and play with my friends. Preschool has taught me listening and how to play outside. When I grow up I want to paint all of the buildings in the world.
