Y’s Little Owls Morning Preschool and Afternoon Childcare

The Y’s Morning Preschool and Afternoon Childcare 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!

During our Morning Preschool 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 within the Morning Preschool program: 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.

Morning Preschool recitals: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring and Pre-K Graduation
During our Afternoon Childcare program we offer a nap and/or quiet time, gym and outdoor play, nutritious afternoon snack and crafts along with free play activities.
