The YMCA’s NEW 4-Year-Old Preschool Program includes a structured preschool curriculum from 9:00am – 12:00pm and also includes care before from 6:30am – 9:00am and after from 12:00pm – 6:00pm. During the structured preschool time we will be using the Get Set for School Curriculum, a play-based curriculum that offers a full pre-writing program and materials that build critical skills like early math and literacy. The curriculum also includes programs designed to prepare children for school: Readiness & Writing, Language & Literacy, and Numbers & Math. This is a year round program that meets your child’s school readiness needs and the family’s full-day child care needs.

The YMCA Early Childhood Development Program is a low income-based program that provides families with quality preschool and child care. In order to be considered, please fill out the intake form and submit to enrollment@ymcacassclay.org. Priority is given to families that meet income guidelines (please see intake form). YMCA membership is not required. Children must be a resident of the West Fargo School District and turn four years old prior to August 1, 2018 to be eligible for this program. 

Program Options:

9:00am – 12:00pm, including care: 6:30am – 9:00am and 12:00pm – 6:00pm Monday – Friday
