Learn, Grow and ThriveYMCA Preschool at Toler Elementary School

The most formative time in a child's development occurs within the first five years, which is why we put so much careful planning into our preschools and ensure our staff has a tremendous amount of experience, skill, and knowledge.

Early learning programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility

While each child is unique and develops at his or her own rate, we also believe that they are strong, capable learners who learn best through social and environmental interactions. Preschool at Toler Elementary School provides opportunities for young children to learn through play, both individually and in groups, stimulating each child's development in a natural, home-like setting.
