Indian Boundary YMCA Preschool Program

Indian Boundary YMCA (IBY) is building stronger futures with our preschool programming!

IBY preschoolers discover science, arts, healthy habits, literacy and more! We know how fast children develop and that they want to explore everything, and here they can! Our preschool uses the YMCA Character Development as well as the Creative Curriculum for Preschool, developed by Teaching Strategies, Inc., which is designed to provide a well-rounded early learning program for children prior to kindergarten. Here, children receive classroom instruction in core components like science, art dramatic play and more, as well as physical fitness activities and swimming lessons for 3, 4 and 5-year-old preschoolers.
