YMCA Curriculum

The Y Preschool/Prekindergarten 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/prekindergarten staff provide a warm, nurturing, safe and well-supervised environment.

Please contact Marti Carrington, Preschool/Prekindergarten Director, by email at or by phone at (541) 482-9622 Ext. 332 to schedule a tour or for further information.

Downloadable Registration Forms are located at the bottom of this page - both the 2016-2017 YMCA Preschool/Prekindergarten Application and Health Form are required for registration.
