Early Learning Readiness

Prepare your child for Pre-K and continued learning. The YMCA's Early Learning Readiness Program provides a stimulating environment for children ages 2-4 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 is offered free of charge to the public and 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 learning opportunities.
