The Sheboygan YMCA is offering an onsite 4-year-old Kindergarten program (4K) geared towards today’s active family. The program provides children with an academically stimulating learning environment that centers around health and wellness. The all-inclusive 4K package includes swimming, gymnastics, and gym classes during the before/after school component of the program.
A primary focus of the YMCA is teaching children the importance of healthy eating and physical activity. Students in the 4K program will enjoy healthy snacks and physical activity on a daily basis. Additionally, the YMCA also has a strong academic focus, providing a learning environment that actively engages all learners to reach their fullest potential.
The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, and teachers can differentiate their instruction based on the varied needs of students enrolled.
The Sheboygan YMCA believes that young children benefit from a holistic approach to learning and that it is critically important for children to have a strong connection between home, school, and community. Children enrolled in this 4K program receive a membership to the YMCA and twelve family YMCA day passes, giving families an opportunity to participate in family-based programming at the YMCA, such asfamily open gymnastics and swimming.
Additionally, the 4K program will provide multiple opportunities for families to gather together at the YMCA to participate in a variety of activities that help promote positive family and school interactions.
The four core values of the YMCA are respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring. Children enrolled in YMCA programming are taught the importance of these core values early on, and it is the YMCA mission to promote these core values on a daily basis through peer interactions, group discussions, as well as one-on-one time with all students.
The YMCA 4K class will be taught by Tanya Goes, YMCA Child Care Director, who has a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and holds a Wisconsin Teaching License.
