Child Care, Early Learning & Preschool Programs & Activities

Baxter YMCA offers one of the most dynamic preschool programs on the Southside. For over 20 years, preschoolers have become instilled with the YMCA’s philosophy of developing the spirit, mind, and body of each individual and encouraging an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect for everyone through our four core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Your child will receive the very best in early childhood education at the YMCA.

Programs are designed to offer developmentally appropriate learning experiences for children ages 2 to 5. Children will experience the excitement of exploration and the joy of discovery of their world as they move from one interest center to another. Activities will focus on a variety of skills, including early reading, early writing, early math concepts, art projects, science experiments, music, and much more. A positive self-concept is promoted as children learn to share, participate in group games and projects, take care of belongings, and put things away after use. Preschool teaches invaluable life skills which will stay with your child forever.


Additional childcare options include Play and Learn drop-off hours, preschool enrichment classes, and Kids Night Out events on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month (holiday months are the only exception).
