West Cook YMCA



YMCA PreschoolRegistration on-going for the 2016-2017 school year.

There are so many choices when it comes to doing what is best for a child. And choosing a preschool is no exception.

After all, preschool not only provides important skills that benefit the transition to kindergarten, but gives your child a foundation for reading and math success in elementary school.

But the benefits of preschool continue as your child grows! In fact, a child who attends preschool is more likely to finish high school and attend college than children who don’t.

So with all that’s at stake, how can you choose the best preschool for your child?

Check out Preschool at the West Cook Y! Our team of educators will walk side-by-side with you through your child’s first school experience. You’ll enjoy regular parent-teacher conferences, monthly newsletters filled with helpful tips and updates, invitations to parent education meetings and a passion for partnering with you to address any issues or concerns you have.

Our flexible program features:
  • Half-day sessions with an option to participate 2, 3 or 5 days a week
  • A special class for children who are 2 to 3 years old, and ongoing classes for 3- to five-year-olds.
  • Class size and child-to-teacher ratios that give every preschooler every opportunity to thrive
  • Time for learning, time for playing, and time for exploring and creativity
  • Swim lessons included with every preschool enrollment!
