The Y’s licensed Early Childhood Development Preschool incorporates the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through learning and play. We work on manners, taking turns, socializing, playing, working as a team and building confidence!
We offer a Pre K and Non Pre K Program:
Our Pre K Program is designed to help your child prepare for Kindergarten. We spend time each day on a curriculum-based activity aimed at helping your child master a combination of basic skills: social/ emotional, fine motor, letter, number and shape recognition, math and science concepts. There are certain standards children are now required to meet before entering Kindergarten and we are here to help them learn and have fun!
Our Non Pre K Program is designed to teach young children to master basic social and emotional skills such as manners, socializing, taking turns, being kind, sharing, etc. We also work on a letter a week to encourage your child’s vocabulary and help them prepare before entering the Pre K group next year.
Additional activities offered include: two free swim lesson sessions to use at your convenience; valid for the full school year. We also rock climb at the Y, visit the Walla Walla Library, have visitors come to our Preschool and go on various field trips. During the afternoon we offer nap and/or quiet time, gym and outdoor play, nutritious snacks and crafts along with free play activities.
