YMCA PRESCHOOL: September 9, 2019-May 15, 2020
The Y has an ODJFS licensed preschool education program that will help your child prepare for kindergarten, gain social skills, be active and of course have fun.
Sept. 9 – May 15, 2020
One-Time Registration Fee: $25 per child, per school year
Register at the Y Service Center for the 2019– 2020 by simply paying the $25 registration fee. Preschool tuition is paid monthly and you may wait until the end of August to begin paying these monthly fees. Monthly fees are the total cost of the school-year spread over 9 months, so the fees are the same each month regardless of holidays or days off. Fees may be paid through an automatic bank draft or are due prior to the start of each month.
New families will be invited to meet with the Lead Teacher upon registration.
Y Preschool consists of two age-based classrooms.
Classroom size is limited for both preschools, so we encourage parents to register early.
As with all Y programs, financial assistance for preschool fees is available for families who demonstrate financial need. The application process is simple and quick. You can download an application from the Y’s website at www.marionymca.org or obtain one from the Y service center.
Members Only: A second child in the same household participating in either Explore & Play or Kaleidoscope Kids will receive a 20% discount off of the regular fee.
- Christmas break will be Dec. 23 – January 3
- Spring break March 23 – 27

This is a great first time preschool experience for young children. Caring teachers will help all children develop social skills, form friendships and begin to learn the basics needed for a strong education. There is an emphasis on large motor development and physical activity. Children must either be potty trained or a parent / guardian must remain in the building and accessible throughout the class time. The first two months will be shorter classroom days to help first time students adjust to the classroom.
