Parkwood YMCA Kid's Time Preschool 

Welcome to Kid’s Time Preschool! 

Kid’s Time Preschool is committed to ensuring that your child’s first educational one is positive. Through our program, the Kids Time Preschool Program strives to provide opportunities that will help individuals clarify values by giving direction to the choices children make, improve personal and family relations, appreciate diversity, become better leaders and followers, develop specific skills and most off all have fun!

In our commitment to quality, the childcare programs are continually reviewed and revised to provide childcare, which is safe, secure, and dependable: a place where children and parents feel welcome and comfortable.

We are excited to have you join our YMCA family. This handbook will help helpful while you are in our program. Please keep it handy for future reference.


Kids Time Preschool believes that each child is unique as is his or her own way of learning. We believe that playing is a child’s work. The preschool experience should be full of new experiences and discoveries that can be made during meaningful facilitated play.  


Individual care will nurture strong beginnings and support developmental growth at a comfortable pace for each child. The YMCA core values of caring, respect, responsibility and honest are incorporated into our daily routine to enhance character development. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, age appropriate environment that encourages individual growth. 


To reach our goals we will use a blended curriculum including individual, small group and large group activities. We use Creative Curriculum to help us set up a rich and stimulating learning environment. Our learning areas include library/quiet area, blocks, art, table toys, sensory, math science, music and movement dramatic play and literacy. Materials are arranged so that children can easily and independently makes selections that appeal to them. Teachers thoughtfully plan activities that will enhance all areas of development: social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative.
