Preschool Child Care

Preschool (2.9 - 5 years)

The Merrimack Valley YMCA believes that a quality program should provide enriching experiences that facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. Under the guidance of nurturing and knowledgeable teachers, your child will have an opportunity to explore and discover through art, literacy, language, mathematics, science, and exploration.

All three of our preschool sites are NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited.  NAEYC accredited programs invest in early childhood education because they believe in the benefits to children and families. To learn more about the level of quality NAEYC preschool programs maintain, visit their website at
