Jumpstart To Pre-School: Early Learning Readiness Program

The YMCA’s Early Learning Readiness Program provides a stimulating environment for children aged 2–4 years to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal, and social skills they’ll need to start school ready to succeed. Thanks to grant funding, the program focuses on increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families. In an informal setting with multiple play stations, adults will learn more about how children develop and how they can encourage learning and skill building at home. The program is geared toward families without access to other early childhood options.

Families are given the opportunity to understand the important role they play in their child’s development and school success. Through this program, we are able to strengthen family and community bonds between the child and caregivers and between caregivers and facilitators.
