YMCA Early Childhood Development Center Hosts Pre-Kindergarten Graduation

“Class of 2027” is Texas School Ready



The South Montgomery County YMCA Early Childhood Development Center recently hosted their annual pre-kindergarten graduation ceremony. The young graduates were the 28th class to graduate. The center opened in Fall of 1986. These children are our future leaders; “The Class of 2027”.

In addition to the high level of YMCA standards and state licensing requirements, the South Montgomery County YMCA Pre-K program has been recognized as Texas School Ready. TSR has helped thousands of children across the state of Texas be more prepared for success in kindergarten and beyond.

Developed by the Children’s Learning Institute at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, TSR is an innovative, research proven early education program approach that combines a research-based state-adopted curriculum with professional development and coaching for preschool teachers. The teachers are provided  virtual and on site coaching and the tools to help them learn more about each child’s specific instructional needs and how to support him or her using engaging lessons and activities. TSR is an example of a high quality early education program that has been proven to help children be more prepared for school.

The YMCA Early Childhood Development Center program provides enriching experiences which facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs and temperament of each individual child by working in partnership with families. YMCA Early Childhood Development programs, licensed by the State of Texas, provide curriculum focused on education, leadership and character development.

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why each child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y vales of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

Registration is now open for the Summer and Fall program. (Limited space available) The Early Childhood  Development Center offers a full day care program for children ages 18 months – Pre-Kindergarten. In partnership with Conroe ISD, the YMCA offers after school care at all elementary and flex schools in South County . The YMCA also offers a before and after school program at the Creekside Elementary with Tomball ISD, in The Woodlands Creekside Village.
