A.E. Finley YMCA Discovery Kids 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. We provide a variety of games, activities and challenges. Regularly scheduled field trips and monthly swim outings (ages 3 & 4) 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.
