Taylor Family YMCA – Preschool

Taylor Family YMCA Preschool emphasizes a hands-on learning curriculum, motor skill development, creativity and more. We provide a safe, nurturing opportunity for your preschooler to gain self-confidence and learn life skills such as making friends, exhibiting good sportsmanship and respecting others.

We base our lesson plans on The Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies Inc. In our 4-year-old program we use WCPSS curriculum Letterland We provide a variety of games, activities and challenges. Regularly scheduled field trips and monthly swim outings (ages 4-5) add adventure to the program.

We utilize center-based activities to teach our eight core content areas: literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, arts, technology, health habits and social responsibility.
