Our DCFS-licensed early childhood learning center serves children ages 2 to 5 years old, preparing them for kindergarten with academic, social/emotional, and motor skill development. 

Offering more benefits for your child than your average preschool, the Two Rivers YMCA Preschool features multiple playgrounds indoors and outdoors, swim time, swimming lessons, Spanish lessons, and more!

We partner with parents in the social, mental, physical, and spiritual development of their children by offering a structured and creative program provided by qualified and nurturing staff. 


Two Year Olds

We strive to create a developmentally appropriate hands-on learning environment designed specifically for two-year-olds. Your child will learn through discovery during busy, fun-filled days at the Y. Social skills, language development, and large and small movement skills are the focus for your little one. Our nurturing staff understands the development needs of this tender age.

Three & Four Year Olds

This age is a critical learning period. Our program features a thematic approach to learning and offers a variety of intriguing activities to stimulate early development. This class utilizes the entire YMCA facility to foster social and emotional growth as well as large and small motor skills. Children realize personal interests at their own pace while developing language skills, writing, number and letter recognition, and their imagination. Field trips and guest speakers throughout the year help to complete the curriculum.

Four & Five Year Olds // Pre-Kindergarten

We understand the importance of preparing children for success in elementary school. This unique program stresses learning through action while utilizing the entire YMCA facility for exploration and creative play. Our thematic approach emphasizes learning through experiences in writing, math, literacy, language, science, social and emotional activities, dramatic play, and music. The goal of the program is to help your child succeed and develop a positive feeling about themselves and school along with gaining an understanding of self-regulation. Field trips and guest speakers are also part of the curriculum.
