3 Ways YMCA Day Camp Gets Kids Ready for Preschool

For young children, play is powerful. That's why Day Camp for toddlers at the Y uses a play-based model, which is a natural way of learning, to create teachable moments that give kids everything they need to be ready for preschool.

Preschool can be a very active place! Camp can help get your child ready for physical activities they'll experience there.

Whether they're gaining flexibility and balance in gymnastics, learning to climb on playground equipment or simply being silly playing camp games, your camper will use their energy to become more comfortable with many different types of movements.

Preschool may be the first time your child will interact with dozens of other kids.

The Y's day camps are filled with camp games and activities that encourage your child to collaborate and communicate with other children. They learn the value of asking for help, assisting others, sharing and teamwork

It's important that kids know what it feels like to succeed. From playing camp games to meeting new friends to creating works of art, each activity at Preschool Day Camp is designed to give your camper a sense of accomplishment.

Your child will walk into the first day of preschool unafraid and ready to learn because of their success at day camp!
