YMCA Guided Discovery Preschool programs offer part-time preschool for preschool age children. At the Y, we believe that growth and development are critical in a child’s earliest years. YMCA Child Development programs are committed to providing an environment where children feel safe and are encouraged to explore and learn. Our programs provide opportunities, experiences, and relationships to stimulate a young child’s physical, social, cognitive, and emotional development. The YMCA collaborates with the West Ada and Caldwell School Districts to offer a collaboration preschool. This preschool model allows for a diverse group of children from all backgrounds and abilities to grow and develop in an inclusive environment.
