Programs offered at 11 locations throughout metro Atlanta

The YMCA of Metro Atlanta early learning enrollment is open at 11 Y Early Learning Program locations for the 2021-2022 school year. The Y’s state-licensed early learning programs help improve school readiness and prepare preschool children for success.

Through partnerships with the Early Head Start and Head Start programs, the Y serves more than 2,000 children. Early Learning Programs use researched-based curriculum, which supports learning through play, creative expression and guided activities. Additionally, the Y implements four programs: Read Right From the Start, STEAM Learning, Start for Life and Early Learning Readiness to address every aspect of a child’s developmental needs and prepare them for success.

“Through our Y early learning programs, we provide children with the necessary resources to learn and develop in a fun, safe and supportive environment,” said Lauren Koontz, president and CEO of YMCA of Metro Atlanta. “We hope to encourage and inspire our youngest generation to succeed in elementary school and ultimately, throughout their entire lives.”

With a child-centered approach to early learning, the curriculum places an emphasis on school readiness goals, including arts, mathematics, science and technology, social studies, literacy, character development and healthy habits.
