At the Foglia YMCA, we regard each child as a unique individual who needs to be understood, guided, encouraged and appreciated. Our Preschool program offers children the ability to learn through play and to confidently explore and build a positive self-esteem. Children are encouraged to build social skills that help build upon negotiation skills, conflict resolution skills and building friendships. We offer mixed age classrooms. Mixed age classrooms provide children opportunities to interact with children younger and older than them. This allows children to learn leadership skills, how to be nuturing, as well as social and cognitive skills. Our Preschool curriculum promotes individual growth through learning, exploration and creativity. Our adopted Creative Curriculum promotes social, emotional and physical development, language, literacy, math and cognitive skills. The curriculum also includes science, social studies and the arts to develop the whole child based on their individual developmental needs.
