At the Capital Area YMCA Preschool Center our philosophy and practices are based upon best practices in early childhood development. Our Classrooms reflect an active environment that allows children to make new discoveries and to mature at their own pace. Our children and families also enjoy the benefits of our many partnerships and special programs. Parents gain an invaluable understanding of their child’s social/emotional, behavioral, physical and cognitive development. Monthly parent workshops, semi-annual parent-teacher conferences, hearing, dental, vision and developmental screenings for children all offer parents insight into the developmental stages of preschool aged children. Our Family Workers are available to provide information regarding employment, health insurance, housing, positive redirection and other topics involving children and families. You are welcome to schedule an appointment with your child’s Family Worker ANYTIME.
