PA Pre-K Counts

The Hollidaysburg Area YMCA is excited to announce that we now offer a PA Pre-K Counts program. If your child will be 3 or 4 years old by September 1; now is the time to enroll in PA Pre-K Counts, located at the YMCA Children’s Center.

PA Pre-K Counts offers a free, high quality program to help children learn the skills that they need to be ready and excited for kindergarten. Wrap around care offered during hours PA Pre-K counts class is not in session.

You can expect our preschool classroom to have teachers with the education and expertise to teach young children a curriculum that will help them grow academically and socially. Teachers will regularly review your child’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are best for your child.

Pre-K Counts will help you and your child adjust to pre-kindergarten and have a smooth transition on to kindergarten. We offer a small class size, of no more than 20 students per one teacher and two aides, so that your child can have plenty of one-on-one time with the teachers.
