  • Playing to Learn Open House details

    7:15 pm - 8:15 pm

    Join us for Playing to Learn and Preschool Lit & Fit Open House. Give your child the early experiences needed to build a strong foundation and bright future.

    The Y understands that choosing the right Early Childhood Program for your Preschooler can be a very difficult decision. That’s why the Downriver Family YMCA would like to invite you and your little one to try our program out for a day then decide for yourself if we’re the right fit for your family. Only one free trial class per child permitted. Trial classes are offered on the first Monday of each 2 week session.

    PHILOSOPHY & GOALS
    The Y believes it is important to foster the growth and development of the “whole child.” That’s why our early childhood programs offer a variety of experiences that are designed to enhance and enrich each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development.

    Within our programs’ daily schedule, each child is given many opportunities to create and explore the environment, to develop problem solving and interpersonal skills and to learn developmentally appropriate concepts through themed experiences.
    Our promise is to provide a child-centered, value-driven, developmental experience for your child within a high quality, safe, and fun environment.

    Each 2 week session offers a wide range of self and teacher initiated activities designed around a specific theme:
    September 11-22
    October 9-20
    November 6-17
    December 4-15

    What makes our programs different from the rest?
    Our programs place a special emphasis on developing healthy habits early on such as healthy snacking and daily exercise and on teaching the core values that help children develop strong Character Traits: Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Honesty.

    Both programs include a 1/2 hour swim lesson every Thursday and Friday and incorporate a variety of other special activities throughout the year such as intergenerational exercise with our Active Older Adults and Silver Sneakers Programs, Climbing Wall, Sports, Cooking and more.

    Contact Sharon Karpinski at (734) 655-0345 or skarpinski@ymcadetroit.org to schedule your free trial date today.
