Preschool with the Ashland Family YMCA

We are excited to announce that registration for our 2023-2024 Preschool program is now open! Ours is a licensed program, located at Helman and Walker Elementary Schools in partnership with the Ashland School District, with full and half day options.

The goal for the Ashland Family Y is to provide preschoolers with a strong foundation for their elementary years. Some features of our program include:

  • A curriculum that allows for dramatic and imaginative play, art, movement, science, math, and more.
  • Skill development in academic concepts of literacy and math, such as counting, coloring, and letter recognition, cognitive problem-solving skills, and developing large and fine motor skills, such as walking in a line and using a pencil.
  • Students will learn and practice social and school-readiness skills, such as making friends and acceptance of others, sharing, and taking turns.
  • A program philosophy that promotes active learning that incorporates acceptance and diversity.

Program Options

We offer two program options for 3, 4 and 5 year old kids: Half Day from 7:30a-12p, and Full Day from 7:30a-6p . Children must be 3 and potty trained.

The first day of Preschool will be Tuesday, September 5, 2023. The last day of Preschool will be Thursday, May 23, 2024. Except for the first and last day of school, we will follow the Ashland School District Calendar.

Tuition will be drafted on a monthly basis, 14 days prior to the start of each month from a debit, credit or savings account you have on file with the Y. Both registration options are five days a week. Tuition has been adjusted to account for in-service, holidays, teacher set up and clean up times, etc. For your convenience, we have averaged the yearly tuition over the 9-month school year so your monthly tuition payments are predictable.
