Little Scholars at Okanagan College

3–5 years

YMCA Preschool programs provide vital learning opportunities for preschool children ages 3–5.

We believe strengthening community starts with helping kids reach their potential. With decades of experience in child care, we provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn to build healthy relationships and develop school-readiness skills.

Following the YMCA's national Playing to Learn curriculum, our preschool programs help build a capacity for lifelong learning by creating quality learning experiences through play.

Children belong, grow, thrive and lead in YMCA Child Care programs—that makes for confident kids today and contributing, engaged adults in the future. We believe strengthening community starts with helping kids reach their potential.

Our 3–5 Years programs follow a child to staff ratio of 1:8. Children spend time outside each day and are provided with healthy snacks.
