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.


The preschool program for the 2019/2020 school year will begin on August 19, 2019 and run through May 15, 2020. We follow MCCSC's holiday break schedule throughout the year.

Holidays/Seasons
We will be in session on MCCSC schedule days not coordinated with a holiday or season break, (i.e. election day, built in snow days, or staff development days).

Calendar Dates Off:
September 2: Labor Day December 20-January 3: Winter Break
October 14-15: Fall Break January 20: MLK Day
November 25-29: Thanksgiving Break March 16-20: Spring Break

Registration 
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.

Registration for the 2019/2020 school year began on April 1. Appointments for new families can be made by contacting Preschool Coordinator, Annie Schaffer.

Monthly rates reflect all aspects of the curriculum including gym, swimming (where applicable), and school materials. Need help covering the cost? We're happy to announce we have Financial Assistance available for families in need! Please reach out to Annie Schaffer to learn how you can apply.

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.

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.
