A Solid Foundation for School & Beyond

We offer age appropriate classes in math, science, literature, art, music, nutrition, and large and small motor play. The Kendallville YMCA Preschool will offer gym classes the first semester and swimming the second semester, instructed through the aquatic and wellness departments. As part of our curriculum, your child will attend field trips and hear guest speakers from our community.

We would love to answer your questions about what our exciting programs can offer your children. Our goal is to make this first school experience a very positive one!
