Y Preschool is a trusted early childhood education program that combines a safe and happy educational environment with an intentional, proven curriculum designed to stimulate intellectual, emotional, and social growth - all with the focus of preparing children for success in kindergarten and beyond. Our program provides development opportunities for young children to:

  • learn through play
  • develop cognitive and physical health
  • become enthusiastic, inquisitive learners
  • develop character
  • be independent and self-confident

Children enrolled in Y Preschool routinely assess at, or more often, above state averages across all school readiness measures.

Financial assistance is available while funds last. In most cases, we also accept Child Care Subsidy (CCS) vouchers. Learn more about financial aid.


To enroll in Y preschool, your first step is to call or email the preschool director to schedule a tour. During the tour the director will answer any questions you may have as you tour the classrooms, meet our teachers and learn about daily routines, curriculum, and our goals and expectations.

There are six Y preschool locations in central Maryland serving children ranging in age from six weeks to age 5. Ages vary by location. Select a preschool center to schedule a tour and get more information about ages, program hours and details, sample daily schedule, and more.
