The YMCA Kindergarten Readiness program is offered at Fairlands Y-Kids in Pleasanton. The curriculum is designed to prepare 4 and 5 year olds for kindergarten. The emphasis is on linguistic, phonetic and cognitive development, along with social growth and interaction.

In YMCA youth programs we try to:

  • Finger paint more and point fingers less
  • Do less correcting and more connecting
  • Take our eyes off our watch and watch with our eyes
  • Take more hikes, make more kites
  • Stop playing serious and seriously play
  • Do more hugging and less tugging
  • Build self esteem first and the craft later
  • Be firm less often and affirm much more
  • Teach less about the love of power and more about the power of respect, responsibility, caring and honesty
  • Put a smile on every child's face
