The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.
A Learning Environment
The YMCA offers a wonderful place where your child can learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment. The programs are operated on an experimental learning philosophy - children learn by doing. The theme-based curriculum includes skill building for kindergarten readiness through a literacy-based circle time, arts, dramatic play, math concepts, building blocks, games and physical play. The children learn positive social skills through a program and staff that teaches and demonstrates the values of honesty, responsibility, caring, and respect.
Our preschool programs encourage family involvement through special events, newsletters, parent advisory committees, and volunteers in the classrooms. The goal of the YMCA Preschool is to give children a balanced experience that develops social, emotional, and intellectual skills.
Parents of children in LAUP classrooms can feel confident that their 4 year-olds are in preschool programs that have been evaluated for quality. LAUP carefully review teacher qualifications, class sizes and adult/child ratios and the environment in which children explore and learn. All LAUP programs welcome parents into the classroom as asctive and engaged partners in their children's experience. The YMCA will be very concerned with developing the spirt, mind and body of every child.
