Discovery School ages 4-5

The Ashland Family YMCA Discovery School provides safe, loving care for children 4 to 5 years of age.

Discovery School children must be 4 years of age by 9/1/18 and toilet trained. Select the schedule that works for you:  M-F, MWF or TTH, 8a-12p.  (See PDF document at the bottom of this page for specific scheduling and pricing information).

The Y Discovery School is a developmental learning program based on themed units of interest. Children move through various centers in the classroom, exploring areas either through child initiated or teacher directed activities. Centers are designed to assist in developing language and social skills, large and fine motor skills, and math and science skills. Our program also includes story time, music and movement, arts and crafts, and dramatic play. We strive to teach children the basic values of caring, honesty, responsibility and respect. Our preschool staff provide a warm, nurturing, safe and well-supervised environment.

Please contact Kelsey Rittenhouse, Community Programs Director for Youth Development programs, by email at or by phone at (541) 482-9622 ext. 313 to schedule a tour or for further information.
