Ages 2 to 5

Copley Price Family YMCA Child Developmental Preschool provides a high-caliber, innovative program for children ages 2 to 5. The preschool is licensed by the State of California and offers quality care and the excellent standards of the YMCA. Particular attention is given to choosing a qualified, trained and nurturing professional staff.

The preschool is operated on a non-discriminatory basis offering equal treatment and access to all children without regard to race, color, or religion.

Our Philsophy

We believe children are strong, capable learners who learn best through social and environmental interactions. Our preschool staff provides opportunities for children that stimulate each child’s physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development in our natural, home-like environment. Children are allowed to learn through play, both individually and in groups. The YMCA understands that each child is unique and has his or her own rate of development.

Our Curriculum

Our approach to learning is based on the Creative Curriculum, which focuses on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. Learning is a natural process occurring through self-directed experience, but optimized by a supportive environment as well as positive interaction with adults.

The teachers facilitate these interests by mindfully setting up learning centers in their environment with materials and experiences where children can investigate and make discoveries, while expressing them through art, dramatic
play, and social interactions. Our teachers use observation and documentation of the children to research interests, make learning visible for parents, and assess the development of our children.
