Day camp preschool 3-5 years

Preschool 3-5 years

The Y’s value-based approach to early learning will help your young child develop essential social, physical, and intellectual building blocks. Our state-licensed preschool day camp provides a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed to support the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth of your children. Children are encouraged to use their creativity, develop new skills, work and play with peers, and build positive relationships with adult role models.

Our experienced staff design camp days that balance the physical and creative activities with both structured and imaginative play. Campers will enjoy swim lessons, arts & crafts, sports fitness, STEAM activities, outdoor play, water activities, special events and more! Preschool Day Campers are placed in age-appropriate groups. Preschool Day Camp does not offer a designated nap time.

All campers must be potty-trained; pull-ups, diapers or training pants will not be permitted.

Preschool Day Camp programs adhere to the COVID-19 regulations put forth by Pennsylvania State child care licensing and the Department of Human Services.

The drop off and pick up location will be held in the Edgeworth Elementary cafeteria.

All children will go outside daily unless we are experiencing severe weatherdefined as a heat index of 90 degrees or higher. When the heat index is 90 degrees or higher, campers will participate in camp activities in the air-conditioned facilities at Edgeworth Elementary. This means the temperature is or feels like 90 degrees.

Our child care programs are licensed through the State Department of Human Services, and we participate in the Keystone S.T.A.R.S. quality enhancement program. We accept Child Care Works funding and offer financial assistance to families that qualify.
