This program is specifically designed to meet the needs of preschool children (Infant-5yrs).
We strive to provide each child with positive and stimulating activities within a nurturing Christian atmosphere. Through a well-balanced curriculum, our program promotes positive self-concepts, creative development, intellectual challenge, cooperation and respect for one another. This program is licensed by the Department of Family and Protective Services and residing in Round Rock.
Children are provided with a nourishing breakfast, a hot lunch and an afternoon snack as part of our program. For more information, please contact the Y Licensed Child Care Services Desk at (512) 615-5563.
Preschool at the Y is a program of the YMCA of Greater Williamson County. We uphold the heritage, tradition and values of the Y throughout our program activities. Our events reflect non-denominational, universal beliefs that transcend all cultures. We consistently demonstrate respect and support for all families, appreciating their right to determine and practice their own beliefs.
Purpose & Goals
At our preschool, we provide a safe, nurturing environment for all children by promoting healthy character development of spirit, mind and body. We work collaboratively with families, communities and school districts to ensure that each child receives a consistent set of life skills for success. To meet these goals, our program incorporates the Y’s Core Values (Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility & Faith) as well as the 40 Developmental Assets set forth by the Search Institute and the experiential learning model.
The Y strives to make each child’s day a magical experience – explore, discover, create new friendships, try new activities along with the traditional favorites. Each of our Y staff is carefully chosen to be positive role models and caring individuals. Every staff working in our program will attend training seminars which includes topics such as: leadership skills, positive discipline, creating excitement, learning new games, safety, CPR and First Aid, Child Abuse Prevention training as well as many others. Our staff is the key to success and to your child’s happiness.
