Pre-K Counts


Give your child a nationally recognized pre-k experience that prepares them for kindergarten while instilling within them to YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility!

Pre-K Counts is a free state-sponsored program that we offer in partnership with the School District of Lancaster, with enrollment being based on a child’s needs and the family’s income. Our classrooms at 252 Harrisburg Avenue and 265 Harrisburg Avenue can accommodate 58 students.

We will be monitoring all health and safety regulations so we can enter the 2021 school year as safe and enriching as possible!
