The safety of your child is our top priority. We have implemented additional safety measures to keep all students and staff safe. The Geneva YMCA Preschool 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.

​At the Y Preschool, your child will also have the opportunity to participate in confidence building YMCA enrichment programs including weekly swim lessons (led by our Aquatics Director), weekly gymnastics lessons (led by our Program & Wellness Director) and bi-monthly Children’s Yoga classes (led by one of our certified Yoga Instructors).

At the Y we strive to develop the whole child providing them the best possible foundation for a lifetime of success.  Contact Childcare Director Donna Wandell today to learn more or to schedule a visit to our classroom for you and your child.
