BUILDING BRIGHT FUTURES

PRESCHOOL TRIK-A-THON & FUNDRAISER: Scroll down for details

LEARNING TREE PRESCHOOL

Just as a tree grows, so do our children who are nurtured by caring parents and caregivers. The YMCA of the Foothills Learning Tree Preschool is committed to caring for your children just as you would.  For over 20 years, we have provided our community with a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and develop.
 
The Learning Tree Preschool at the YMCA of the Foothills strives to not only prepare our students for kindergarten but for the rest of their lives.  We feel it is just as important to develop the individual, as we do with teaching the ABCs and 123’s.  Like many of our programs for older youth, our goal for our students is to build independence, self-esteem, and confidence.  That is why it is so important to teach them these attributes at an early age.  

​Our students learn the importance of respecting others, building positive relationships with peers and adults, developing social norms, and discovering the benefits of making healthy choices.  When they graduate we hope that they are prepared socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually for kindergarten.

2022 PRESCHOOL
Trik-a-thon

RACERS READY...

The race was ON as each class participated in the 2022 Preschool Trik-a-thon on Friday, May 20th! The littles were cheered by parents, grandparents, family/friends and their Y family.

This was the kickoff event to launch their ‘Kitchen Remodel’ fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised will help the Y team in remodeling the kitchen on site and make it more functional for the Learning Tree Preschool. 

The Preschool Trik-a-thon raised about $4,000 but the goal is $10,000. To donate, please click the link below:

Under Campaign, be sure to select the 2022 VHY Preschool Trik-a-thon

WHAT PARENTS SAY

Happy Mother's Day
I loved that my daughter came home and wanted to know if we could have a recycle bin for her to recycle in. I was amazed at how much she learned and wanted to be impactful. We now have a recycle bin and she recycles anything with a triangle on it! 
Kids in Preschool
My kids love being with the other kids, playing outside, doing their activities. They feel important and independent. They also adore their teachers.
Father with his Son
I love their curriculum. There is no other place as well managed and convenient for my son. I feel secure with my son's well-being, and his learning experience says it all. Thanks YMCA for helping out family in such a great way.

MORE PARENT TESTIMONIALS

"Thank you for offering such an affordable and varied program with caring staff."
 
“My family and I have ran into financial difficulties this past year and a half. So when we found the YMCA they truly gave us some light with all the help they gave my family. My son loves this preschool so much he is so smart and has grown it's unbelievable. He even wants to go to school on the weekends. I truly owe it to the yellow bird teachers and the support from the YMCA they are the best!!! Thank you YMCA”
 
“She enjoyed the relationship with her teachers. She particularly liked when the teachers would hold spontaneous "dance parties" with all the kids!”
 
“It is hard to pick just one! Learning Tree has really helped my son try new things and build confidence in his academic and social skills. One of the funniest moments was when he told me that "you can only kiss and hug your parents under the mistletoe (that they had hung in the classroom at Christmas) ...unless the teachers aren't looking."
 
“My child's speech was a problem at first but once attending the preschool he is talking so much!! What a turn around, thank your yellow bird teachers!!”
 
“Our family really enjoyed the special "Daddy and Me" and "Mommy and Me" days that the school put on--it was a wonderful way for us to spend some quality time together in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We appreciate that the staff is willing to give up part of their weekend to host an event like that.”
 
“My child has been there since he was 2 and he is now graduating. I can never express my gratitude enough for Miss Amara, who made him feel comfortable all the time and made his early days of preschool an easy transition for him. He still goes to her for comfort. Our family just loves her.”
 
“I loved watching my son walk in with little understandable vocabulary and ending with him talking in full complete, will never stop, sentences.”
