Nursery School & Preschool
The Norwich Family YMCA Nursery School and Preschool is designed to meet the needs of a very important part of our population – our future citizens and leaders! We have designed programs that encourage children to explore, inquire and attempt to solve the many problems and questions they have – in essence, to learn by doing. We want to instill in them a lifelong love of learning. The classroom program provides each child with age-appropriate experiences that encourage self-help skills, a positive self-image, language and communication skills, positive social interaction, large and small motor development, school readiness skills and creative expression. To accomplish this we enjoy many interesting books, songs, calendar time, movement to music, science ‘experiments,’ hands-on math activities, art projects, and healthy snacks.
 
Another important part of the YMCA program addresses a child’s physical health. The aquatics staff provides weekly swim instruction in a non threatening environment, which allows each child to have a positive experience in the water. A child is never forced to do something that they are not yet ready to do – “go at your own pace” is the YMCA’s motto. Safety in and around the pool is practiced and taught during each lesson. The YMCA swim program uses games and songs to make learning swim skills more fun. Children also participate in a weekly physical education class, enjoying the opportunity to hop, skip, run and jump – learning to move their bodies in healthy ways!
Kids' Club
Kids' Club gives preschool age children an opportunity to play, create, explore through crafts, games, stories and swim.  Weekly themes will engage imaginations and creativity.  Children must be 3 prior to first day attending and also toilet trained.
