Please do not enroll your child in the YMCA preschool program unless it's the Philadelphia school district program. The program that's ran by the YMCA is horrible. My 4year old didn't learn anything in the 3 months that she attended. Then the teacher let And they replaced her with a other so call teacher..And she still didn't learn anything. She played all day And did arts And crafts. My 2year old teacher pinched her finger so hard that it left a mark on her finger. When I confronted the teacher she stated that she stepped on my child's finger,by accident. She just lied because my daughter told the teacher to her face. You pinched my finger. This place is just a mess. I took my 2 children out. And wouldn't recommend this place for anyone. Also they have children that need in class support that attends the program. That's throwing chairs, using profanity And is just a danger to other children. But they don't care as long as they receive money..
