Preschool/Early Learning Programs

Kid's Prep

The Kid’s Prep Program at the Kalihi and Leeward YMCA is a great introduction to a school setting. The program focuses on enhancing children’s social skills by providing them with opportunities to interact with peers, introducing basic rules of sharing & "taking turns", and teaching children to "use their words" and put language to their feelings. Daily activities such as arts & crafts, story time, outdoor play, music & dance, and snack time are creatively implemented to keep your child engaged while teaching them age appropriate concepts. Space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
