Hamilton Area YMCA

Y's Owls Preschool

Opening Monday, October 18, 2021

 While many things will seem different with new procedures in place for the safety of all, Y’s Owls Preschool at the Hamilton Area YMCA will still be an environment that fosters fun and learning. The teachers and administration at Y’s Owls Preschool are committed to providing a quality program that is safe, educational, child-friendly, and fun! It is our goal to draw out and inspire the best in our students as we provide them with opportunities to create, explore, and learn.

Our program directors lead a qualified, experienced staff in implementing the Creative Curriculum. This curriculum provides your child with a balance of structured and independent activities and builds the foundations for academic and social competence.

We are very excited for our reopening and cannot wait to welcome the children. 

This year the Y’s Owls Program will offer a Mixed-Age Classroom made up of age eligible three and four year olds. Children will be attending the Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

There are many benefits to having a Mixed-Age Classroom in the Preschool setting–

  • Mixed-age classrooms mimic family structures and neighborhood grouping
  • Leadership increases among older children
  • Mixed age classrooms stimulate each other’s development
  • Academics and Social Skills are improved for all children
  • Mixed-age classrooms can boost self-esteem
