Glenville Pre-School Program

Developing A New Generation

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life. Because of the Y community, kids are taking more interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, kids learn their ABC’s, learn to share, learn about sportsmanship, and most importantly, learn how to be themselves. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.


Y Pre-school is a great way for your child to interact with other children and gain the social skills needed as he/she grows and matures. Our Pre-School takes place at the Good Shepard Lutheran Church (547 Saratoga Rd, Glenville, NY 12302).

Our pre-school program follows an educational enriching curriculum that focuses on school readiness, character development, health and fitness, diversity and values education. Download a PDF registration form.
