Enrichment Program (Preschoolers)
Our state licensed and NAEYC accredited Enrichment Programs offer opportunities for children ages 3-5 to interact in an inclusive, child-directed environment. We focus on learning through the developmental areas of cognitive, social-emotional, language, and physical development; using “play” as the focal point of all learning.
The Enrichment Center is a safe, caring environment where each child is encouraged to learn new skills, express himself freely and explore the environment. Teachers facilitate independence, self-esteem, and model and support problem-solving skills.
Teachers provide an environment designed to promote social-emotional, cognitive, physical, and language skills. Using process-oriented activities, children learn risk taking and build self-confidence.
Our day is designed with individual and group activities as well as free and structured play time. Daily, teachers observe and interact with children attempting to maintain an environment that is stimulating and meets the needs of each child at his/her own level of readiness. Ultimately, in keeping with the purpose and philosophy of the Y, we strive to help children develop fully in body, mind, and spirit.
We believe that children learn through play. Therefore, the environment in our child care programs will be designed to allow the children to explore and create independently. It is our goal to provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum, which will enhance the healthy growth of your child as an individual. Through observation, teachers will design creative activities that teach skills needed to move to the next developmental stage.
