Preschool Center for Youth Development

At the Y, we recognize that successful youth development requires a holistic approach focused on achieving certain social-emotional, cognitive and physical milestones - starting with Preschool. Our year-round Preschool just relocated to a brand new space on the first floor of the Y, thanks to the generous support of The Belmont Savings Bank Foundation.


We currently have a limited number of openings and enrollment is ongoing.

We will begin enrolling for the 2018-2019 School Year in March 2018.

Ages: 2 years 9 months - 6 years

Full Day program runs from 7:00 am - 6:00 pm

Half Day program runs from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm

Choice of 2 days / 3 days or 5 days a week.

A current West Suburban YMCA Youth or Family Membership is required for participation (more information on Membership).
