Pre-School & Pre-K

At the Mon Valley YMCA Child Learning Center, we offer a range of engaging preschool and pre-K programs designed to nurture young minds and prepare them for a successful educational journey.

Learning Journeys (Ages 2 ½ and Up): Our Learning Journeys program provides a gentle introduction to the learning environment, catering to children as young as 2 ½ years old by either August 1st or January 1. This program helps children adjust to the classroom setting, encouraging them to follow simple directions, participate in daily routines, engage in circle and story time, explore crafts, and learn early conflict resolution skills. It’s a supportive stepping stone for those who may not yet be ready for formal preschool.

2-Day Preschool (Ages 3 and Up): Our 2-Day Preschool program is ideal for children aged 3 years and up by August 1st. Through this program, children are introduced to letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and fundamental concepts. They learn through activities such as singing songs, making letter crafts, working with manipulatives, and engaging in learning centers.

All Day 3-Day Pre-Kindergarten (Ages 4 and Up): This program is offered from 9:15am – 2:15pm and is designed for children aged 4 years or older by August 1st.  Throughout the year, children are fully prepared for kindergarten by learning letters (uppercase/lowercase), numbers (1-30), and age-appropriate developmental skills including listening skills in the classroom.  The students will participate in weekly Speech Lessons that focus on phonemic awareness and sentence structure.  They will learn to count, recognize, and write numbers, as well as recite personal information.  The program will include, circle time, hands-on centers, large group learning, small group learning, kindergarten readiness worksheets, crafts, science, music and so much more!
