The Burbank Community YMCA Child development center provides early educational experiences that support the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning, utilizing a play-based method of teaching that supports all learning trajectories; Literacy, Mathematics, Music, Science, Physical Growth, and Art, all while promoting and fostering a young child's love for learning.

As a YMCA Program, our preschool promotes healthy eating and physical activity at an early stage in your child's life. All meals are freshly prepared and served family style each day by our onsite chef.

Enrollment in our program includes a family membership to the Burbank YMCA, which allows students to participate in enriching activities: gymnastics, basketball, dance, swimming and more.

Preschool Curriculum

Our preschool program serves children ages 18 months through 5 years of age, providing young children learning opportunities that encourage self-directed learning opportunities, relationship building and cognitive development at each child's individual pace.

Each child portfolio represents anecdotal notes and observations that demonstrate each child's development and tells the story behind the learning taking place.
