YMCA of Southern Maine

For a Better Us.™

Preschool

Preschool is offered at both our Casco Bay Branch and Northern York County Branch Community Child Care Center.

Our staff are committed toward helping every child develop to their fullest potential physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.  We do this through the use of positive interactions, planned curriculum, and spontaneous learning moments. At the Y we nurture every child's development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We work to ensure that kids participating in our programs are interacting with peers and positive role models and are having fun while building their self-esteem and social skills through a variety of organized enrichment activities and free play.  

 

 

FOR ALL

Our Annual Campaign raises funds for our families in need of financial assistance.  This past year over 800 youth received some level of financial assistance for our Child Care programs.  If you think you may qualify, please apply!  Contact your local branch for more information or stop by the branch to pick up an application.

We accept DHHS vouchers, ASPIRE, and Transitional Assistance Funds.  Please contact us if you qualify for this funding.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions, would like additional information including rates, or to sign your child up for our child care.
