The Kid's Corner Pre-school, ages 2-5, exists to meet the developmental needs of each child in our program. We recognize that each child is unique and special; we are committed to helping all our children achieve their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body. We will make learning interesting and fun.
We seek to help each child...
- learn those basic skills that will support future academic and intellectual development;
- enhance social skills that will encourage teamwork and friend-making;
- build character by learning the YMCA's core values-caring,respect, responsibility and honesty;
- develop self esteem that will foster poise and confidence
To accomplish our objectives, we will offer a variety of activities, such as the following:
Music Group work
Nature studies Informal play
Storytelling Field trips
Visits from special guests
Theme-based learning activities
Through these activities, children will be introduced to phonics, language arts, number and letter recognition, and colors. They will work both independently and within a group; they will learn to explore, discover, create, make choices, accept responsibilities, and solve problems; they will accept an enthusiasm for learning.
