Registration is open for Summer 2024 and 2024-2025 Preschool in Ashland and Talent!

Our Preschool is a licensed program. The Ashland Family YMCA is invested in providing quality, full-day early childhood opportunities to families in the valley. Our Preschool Programs run Monday – Friday from 7:30a-6p to support working families. We understand the cost of childcare is high and we are committed to reducing financial barriers so all children can experience opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive in a social environment. We accept ERDC! Any family who applies for financial assistance with our Preschool Programs (Ashland and Talent) will be awarded financial assistance.

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. All 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 school year so your monthly tuition payments are predictable.

The goal of 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.
