Our Philosophy
The Y provides an environment that encourages curiosity, creativity and expression. We encourage healthy growth in spirit, mind, and body, with cooperation and mutual respect for everyone. We develop this through positive character development and by modeling these behaviors through teacher-children interactions. Children are individuals, and we believe in developing the whole child emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially, while meeting each child’s own needs and learning styles. Through games, group activities, songs, creative drama, gym time, outdoor play, and story time, children will learn about the world around them. We believe in partnering with parents to encourage whole child development within a safe and nurturing environment.

These classes take place at the Southeast Y branch.
The preschool classes for the school year will begin on August 16, 2017, and run through May 16, 2018.

We follow MCCSC's break schedule throughout the year.

Registration for the 2017/2018 school year will begin on March 27. Families new to the program need to schedule an appointment with the preschool coordinator prior to registration. Appointments will be scheduled beginning the week of March 27.

Children must be the age of the program for which they are enrolling by September 1 of this school year. Families enrolling in an afternoon program must also register for Lunch Bunch. A $50 non-refundable registration fee is required to hold a place for your child. The registration fee for each additional class is only $25 per student. This fee guarantees your child a place in the program and covers the cost of supplies for the school year.

Monthly rates reflect all aspects of the curriculum including gym, swimming (where applicable), and school materials. Parents are requested to provide a snack for the children on a rotating classroom schedule. Preschool fees are due on the first of the month. Automatic payments are required each month with an active card or bank account on file. These payments may be scheduled for the first or a different approved date by the coordinator. Automatic payment forms must be completed by July 15 at the front desk, and the first month's tuition will be due August 1. Shorter months are not pro-rated, as we have calculated the tuition for the year and divided it evenly between the 10 months of programming.

Note: Families must remain members throughout the school year to qualify for the member rate.
