Extend-A-Care YMCA offers preschool programs to Austin-area children. Our programs meet children’s individual needs by offering cognitively, socially, and physically enriching curricula. View two parent blogs featuring some of our curriculum and activities: Blog 1 and Blog 2.

Activities include building blocks and construction, dramatic play, reading, science and math, arts & crafts, creative expression, outdoor play, games and puzzles, and much more!
