Dear Preschool Families,

These past five months have been trying on many levels for everyone, including us here at the YMCA. As we look to best meet the needs of our community, we must reevaluate all the programs we are able to offer for all age groups.

With the Governor’s decision to allow each school district to move forward with individual plans, schedules, and policies, we recognize the challenges of an inconsistent schedule of operation for partial day preschool, and realize a large community of school age families will need support from the YMCA. Additionally, we have no clear direction from the Governor as to when our regular branch operations can open and what restrictions might be.

Given the Governor’s decision, community needs, and uncertainly with reopening, unfortunately we will not be hosting our partial day preschool program at any of our YMCA locations this fall.

As we have throughout the pandemic, we continue to evolve and look for ways to reinvent our offerings to best serve our community. We hope to find a way to connect with you and your child(ren) in the future – perhaps virtually. If we find a model that works, you will be the first to hear.

If you have already enrolled your child(ren), you will be able to credit that money toward another program or receive a refund. Please contact your home branch with your decision.

We appreciate your patience during this time as we looked into all of our options. Should anything change, we promise to let you know as soon as possible.

With appreciation,
Kevin Fitzpatrick
Chief Operating Officer
