Little Learners & Campers

Give your 3-5 year old the opportunity to grow and learn at the Y in a program just their size! 

Our preschool programs are designed for children to enjoy a wide variety of activities such as story time, arts & crafts, songs, group games, and much more! Children will have a chance to build confidence, make friendships and feel like they belong. Each week's activities are built around a special theme.
