Early Learning Center Expansion
About Our Program
The Bath YMCA’s Enrichment Program is an all-inclusive, child-centered program that is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our program offers full-day and half-day opportunities for children ages 3 to 5 years old to interact in an inclusive, child-directed environment.
Our focus is on learning through the developmental areas of social-emotional, physical, cognitive and language - utilizing “play” as the focal point for all learning. We respect and support children in the acquisition of new skills, believing that children learn at their own pace, developing skills as they build upon gained knowledge. A typical day is structured with individual and group activities and free and structured play time, with a strong focus on outdoor play and learning.
The Bath YMCA maintains numerous community partnerships, including public partnerships with RSU1 and West Bath school districts to provide free preschool to 4 year olds. We never turn families away for inability to pay, offering financial aid and accepting Child Care Subsidy Program (CCSP) funding. All children in our preschool program receive free meals and snacks each day through the Y’s year-round food program.
