2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Children are back to school-based instruction and socializing with peers, parents rely on dependable child care while they work, and the Y continues to provide a healthy and safe environment for students, families, and staff.  Since the pandemic began in March 2020, the Y has effectively been providing Emergency Child Care, Preschool & School Age Child Care programs, and Summer Day Camp to children across Long Island with redesigned safety procedures in place.

All participants in YMCA Child Care programs must have an active Program or Full Membership. Please visit our Membership page to purchase online.

 

YMCA PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS

The YMCA of Long Island's Early Childhood/Preschool Programs are committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment for young children to learn, grow and develop social skills. Our teachers create a warm and loving atmosphere while offering a developmentally-appropriate, engaging curriculum, where children can play, discover and learn. The development of independence, trust and initiative is fostered through a balanced program of choice and structure, quiet and active play, and group and individual time. Our programs encourage children to explore, experiment and learn through literacy, science, dramatic play, block building, art, music and manipulative materials all while acquiring school readiness skills of reading and math. Age ranges for Early Childhood/Preschool Programs are 18 months* - 4 years old.

NEW FAMILIES: Complete the Preschool Interest Form. A member of our Child Care Team will contact you to complete your registration including enrollment packet and tuition payment.
