Davis Family YMCA Preschool

Our Philosophy

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life. Because of the Y Preschool, kids have the opportunity to be creative, explore their environment and develop problem solving skills through self discovery and teacher assisted activities. At the Y, kids learn their ABC’s, learn to share, learn sportsmanship, and most importantly, learn how to be themselves. Those qualities make for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Our Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

Building character through the promotion of Caring, Faith, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
