The Y program prides itself on being much more than just day care. When you entrust your child to the Y, we strive to fulfill our promise to make each day an opportunity for your child to learn, grow, and thrive. Our Preschool Program stimulates interest and creates awareness of different people, objects and experiences through the use of cooking, music, STEM, nature, swim and gym, computers, arts and crafts, story-time, and dramatic play. Preschool students must be potty trained. Before enrollment is accepted, a parent/child visit is required.
The Preschool Program runs from September through June, 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week, from 7:00 AM-6:00 PM for full day students and and either morning 9:00 AM-12:00 PM or afternoons 2:00-5:00 PM for half day students. Extended care to 6:30 PM is also available. Full day summer camp options are available in our Busy Bees Program.
At the Berkeley Heights YMCA students have access to their own fenced in playground, a large grass area, a full gymnasium and two multi-purpose spaces. Our students are provided a healthy morning and afternoon snack that includes fresh fruit or vegetables. Lunch can be purchased through our vendor, Catering Solutions, who offer a variety of custom, healthy, freshly prepared boxed lunches, delivered to our center daily.
An active Summit Area YMCA Membership is required to register for any childcare or summer camp programs. If you do not have a family membership, a Youth Membership (Ages 12 & Under) may be purchased for each child billed annually at $110 per year/per child. If you had a membership previously and are having trouble reactivating it, please complete the Membership Change Request form.
