YMCA of the Triangle Preschool emphasizes a hands-on learning curriculum, motor skill development and creativity. Our preschool is a half-day program offered two, three, four and five days a week, depending on age.

We strive to develop the whole child and to provide an environment for preschoolers to learn, gain self-confidence, make new friends and respect others.
