Fort Wayne Community Schools (Preschool) Y Care

The Y Preschool program is a dual enrollment program with Fort Wayne Community Schools, allowing your child a continued day of learning and care in a structured, enjoyable environment. We believe that social and emotional development is very important at this age. Our program is designed to provide each child with those skills. Hands-on themed centers will focus on literacy, art, fine/gross motor skills, character development and math. All work towards preparing your child for Kindergarten and are based on Indiana and local standards. Our mature and experienced staff will also focus on incorporating the Y's core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility into this program.

In order to take advantage of Y Care, your student will need to be transported to one of the schools that host Y Care. Transportation for Preschool students occurs in the middle of the day. Consequently, we are not able to provide care for all circumstances. Students attending Morning Preschool will not have Before School Care available to them unless they attend a school that hosts Y Care. Likewise, students attending Afternoon Preschool will not have After School Care available to them unless they attend a school that hosts Y Care.
