YMCA of Greater Long Beach Preschools

Did you know that 90% of a human’s brain develops before the age of 5?

What many parents don’t realize is that a strong investment in our children at this critical time will pay off for the rest of their lives. Simply participating in preschool, even remotely, is the most impactful ways to give your children the skills they need to succeed in life.

Five locations in Greater Long Beach provide state subsidized, year-round childcare for qualifying families. Their preschools reflect the communities that they serve and they work with families to tailor opportunities for children to learn, grow and thrive.

NOTE: Through the duration of COVID-19 safety modifications (physical distancing, masks and additional safety measures), we are providing childcare for working families only. We will also continue to provide distance learning opportunities as well as offer two nutritious grab and go meals daily to all children currently enrolled in our program.
