Early Learners (Preschool)

The YMCA of Greater Whittier is committed to providing our community with a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and develop.

Our stimulating Pre-Kindergarten readiness and early learner curriculum is now available to children 18 months to five years. The program includes: art, music, math, language, and science. We feel it is just as important to develop the individual, as we do with teaching the ABCs and 123s. Our students learn the importance of respecting others, build positive relationships with peers and adults, develop social norms, and discover the benefits of making healthy choices. When they graduate we hope that they are prepared socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually for not just kindergarten, but for the rest of their lives.

What we provide in our early learner program:

  • Licensed program
  • Ages 18 mo-5 years old
  • Professional and caring staff
  • Low teacher to child ratio
  • Healthy meals and snacks included
  • COVID-19 prevention procedures (as recommended by the LA COunty of Public Health)
