Preschool and Pre-K For All

High quality educational programs designed for children ages 2-5. The Shorefront Y's Preschool is facilitated by educated and experienced early childhood professionals in our child-approved playrooms. Our program provides individual attention to help children feel secure and happy as they make their first and very important transition from home to our center. Our Pre-K For All and wrap-around program is for children who were born in 2013.

When school is closed, we are here to offer your children much of the fun of Summer Camp! This is an option for a full day program from 8AM – 6PM which includes dance, science, swimming, & more! As always, a hot Kosher lunch and snack are provided. Holiday camp is an additional fee for children currently enrolled in our After School Program.
