The safety of your child is our top priority. We have implemented additional safety measures to keep all students and staff safe. The Canandaigua YMCA Preschool program requires masks for all teachers and students and has increased the cleaning and disinfecting of all program spaces. Our program features a small and consistent group of students and staff to minimize contact with others as well as a designated drop off/pick up location.

The first five years of a child's life are crucial for lifelong success.  At the Geneva Y, our preschool program provides learning opportunities and positive guidance to children during these very impressionable years.  By discovering and utilizing each student’s uniqueness, our experienced teachers are able to encourage them to explore their creativity, while learning the problem-solving and social skills that will prepare them for the first day of Kindergarten and beyond.

At the YMCA, we offer a unique and rewarding preschool experience unlike any other you will find in our community.  We use exploration and discovery as a way of learning, introducing your child to literacy, art, music, sign-language, math and science through engaging themes, experiential field trips, hands-on activities and creative projects.  With a ratio of 1: 8, our teachers have ample opportunity to guide children as needed through a variety of classroom activities.
