Open Registration for new students for the 2017 school year begins in the YMCA Main Lobby

on Tuesday, March 28 at 8:00 a.m. | First-Come, First-Served

How Open Registration Works:

Registration takes place at the YMCA Main building by the Gymnasium. Upon YMCA Opening, the Manager on Duty will form a line down the YMCA Main Hall by Studio 2.

At 7:30 a.m. parents will receive a Preschool Registration Application with a number. Please do not leave the area once you have received your number.

At 8:00 a.m. the Preschool Director will begin registration in the order of your number received.

At the time of registration you will be informed if your child is enrolled in the YMCA Preschool for the 2017-18 School Year or if they have been added to our wait list.

YMCA Character Development

The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA participates in the Character Development program, which focuses on four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Learning each of these values is vital to the growth and development of children. These values will be incorporated into various planned activities, as well as using teachable moments that the children so often provide.
