Preschool Enrichment

YMCA Preschool Enrichment classes provide knowledge, character development, guidance and encouragement to help youth develop and realize their potential. Younger children participate with a parent, while older children take classes on their own. (A perfect time for mom to join a free group exercise class!).

NEW! PARENT/CHILD GYMNASTICS CLASS

LET’S GET ROLLING (Ages 18 months to 3 years old)

Children learn by seeing, hearing, touching, doing, and having fun. The parent participates with the child in climbing, jumping, and balancing. Coordination is learned and developed through fun, active activities. Learning to follow simple directions is emphasized. Classes are 45 minutes. 


FIRST GYM

Parent/child classes

30-minute classes designed to enhance parallel playtime and introduce interaction with other children. Parents are expected to be active participants in class, guiding their child in the activities and explorations. Due to the nature of these parent and child classes, we do not allow siblings to tag along in class unless they are within the age group and are registered participants.

SUPER TOTS

Stretch, hop and run your way through group activities while learning coordination and enhance cooperation skills with peers.

TODDLER ART

Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty! Parents will assist their children in the creation of a colorful art project each class. Expect to get messy, so dress accordingly.

TOTS IN MOTION

Parents and children will get their bodies moving as they strengthen body awareness, flexibility, and motor skills through rhythm and play.

TOTS IN THE KITCHEN 

Children experience the joy of cooking as they measure and mix simple ingredients to make delicious and nutritious foods to taste and enjoy.


MOVING UP

Classes without parent.

Child needs to be fully toilet-trained. 45-minute classes are designed to help children learn to follow directions, play cooperatively, and enhance social skills. It is recommended that these children have had some prior experience in group settings or First Gym classes, and are ready to be apart from their parents.

Fees: $25 Member | $55 Community Participant
