The Y – Let’s get ready to grow at the Y


Spring is right around the corner, despite what that silly groundhog says! And like the blossoming flowers and sprouting leaves, our excitement for youth development continues to grow.

Of course, Naperville parents and caretakers know all about growth! It’s as if, in the blink of an eye, your child goes from babbling to words to full sentences, and then suddenly, it’s time for preschool. That’s where the Y comes in! 

We know that signing up your child for preschool is an exciting time! At the Fry Family YMCA in Naperville, we believe in showing up for families at every stage of life, starting with the earliest years. We understand that a nurturing environment is essential for healthy growth, whether it be a green seedling or a developing child.

Choosing the right preschool can be the start to a lifelong love of learning! Our preschool program is rooted in the Creative Curriculum, which includes social-emotional development, cognitive development, communication, and literacy. Not only does our early learning program follow Illinois early learning standards, but it’s also accredited through Excelerate Illinois and serves all Illinois families, including those receiving financial assistance.

We’re here to help your child thrive by focusing on developmental opportunities, including pre-writing and reading skills, math skills, conflict resolution, fine and gross motor skills, and so much more!

So here’s the exciting news: Preschool registration for the 2023-2024 school year is currently open! Register now, and let us help your child reach their fullest potential! If you absolutely cannot wait to get your foot in the door, don’t worry, because the Y is still accepting registrations for the 2022-2023 school year across the association.

To register or learn more about preschool at the Y, contact the Fry Family Y at (630) 904-9595, stop by our front desk, or visit us online at ymcachicago.org/fry-family.
