 Who We Are:

 
Learn Grow and Thrive at the YMCA. So much more than a place to stay. Y Early Childhood Development provides enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child's cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs and temperament of each individual child by working in partnership with families. Our program, licensed by the State of Texas, provides curriculum focused on education, leadership and character development.

In addition to the high level of YMCA standards and state licensing requirements, the South Montgomery County YMCA Pre-K program has been recognized as Texas School Ready. TSR has helped thousands of children across the state of Texas be more prepared for success in kindergarten and beyond.

The Y, So Much More than a Place to Stay and Play: It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance.
