Pre-School Academy

The Portage YMCA Preschool Academy is a nine month program for children 3-5 yrs old who are one or two years away from kindergarten. Our program is designed and implemented by dedicated teachers in a nurturing environment to help children reach their full potential and capabilities. We are very academically structured as we help children develop socially and physically as well. Our classrooms are fun and inviting and students look forward to coming to school. Our teachers work closely with the PTS Kindergarten teachers so we are current on all the requirements your child needs to know. As a participant in our preschool you will also have the opportunity to join so many activities the YMCA has to offer to you at the member rate. Financial scholarships are available for low income families.
Register your child for the YMCA Preschool Academy 2013-2014 school year starting March 1st. To enter our Pre-K Academy children need to be 4 years old by August 1, 2013. For our Junior Academy children need to be 3 years old by August 1, 2013.
A registration form along with a $25 non-refundable registration fee will hold your spot in our fall program.
Before the start of school, the student will need a program membership if they are not on a family membership. The fee is $75 for the year. This also enables students to participate in many other programs we have for children at the member rate.
