Preschool Programs

Bright Futures Start Here

Our goal in Preschool Programs is to promote the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of the young children served. In addition, the preschool will act as an education resource for parents and provide assistance in meeting the needs of the children and families served.

Goodwin ECP Before & After School Program

The Y makes the most of your child’s after-school time by offering active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds. YMCA After School Care gives your Goodwin Elementary Preschooler the opportunity to get to know their schoolmates better as they engage in active play and collaborate on fun projects. In the process, they’ll continue to develop the physical, educational, emotional, and social skills which are proven keys for success.

Our program is licensed through the Office of Early Childhood which ensures all staff undergo extensive training and background checks and adhere to staff-to-child-ratios. Financial Assistant is available and Care4Kids is accepted.
