Our Vision

In Jumpstart Preschool, we believe young children are enthusiastic and eager to learn.

We believe it is important for each child to be an individual and express themselves creatively.

We also believe that it is equally important for children to learn self-control, sharing, and social adjustment, while each child develops at their own speed, and we strive to offer every opportunity for them to learn in their own time.

We welcome ALL and know that the inclusion of families from different ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds will help enhance our preschool program and the lives of the children who come together to learn.

 

About our Program

WE HELP CHILDREN GROW

At the Y, we believe that children learn best through play.

Our safe environment gives kids the perfect place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships plus cultivate fine and gross motor skills. We plan our classes to develop each child’s self-esteem and strong image of self-worth. In every class, we encourage children to explore, ask questions and solve problems.

Our early childhood educators provide a warm and secure atmosphere with five areas of focus to help kids meet and exceed developmental milestones: learning, life skills, healthy habits, socialization and fine and gross motor skills.

Daily Activities include:

  • Play
  • Arts & Creativity
  • Science & Discovery
  • Mathematics
  • Fine & Motor Gross Activities
  • Language & Literacy
  • Social Studies
  • Emotional Health
  • Indoor & Outdoor Physical Fitness
  • Swim Lesson & Free Swim (every other week)
