Learning, playing and growing together
Our Discovery Preschool program is planned and based on a set of beliefs that children learn best from hands – on activities. We believe that learning needs to be active. Our Discovery Preschool program provides the tools and activities for the children to experiment while promoting our four core values that include: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The thing that makes our program unique is that swimming is included at our YMCA branch location. Minimum – 6 Maximum - 16
