About this program

Why Pre-K

YWCA Carlisle’s pre-kindergarten curriculum is designed to prepare children for kindergarten while providing them with a safe and stimulating learning experience. The class offers a gentle introduction to the classroom situation, provides kindergarten readiness skills with an emphasis on socialization, and adheres to the requirements of the Carlisle Area School District. We provide daily healthy snacks for the kids and parents are asked to provide a packed lunch. Teachers also incorporate mission-related activities into the curriculum.

Who it is for

4 and 5 year-olds entering kindergarten the following year.

Program schedule

YWCA Carlisle’s preschool program starts in early September and ends in mid-May. Daily program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Our unique 4-hour program is the perfect transition for children entering a full-day kindergarten setting the following year.


Monday/Wednesday/Friday class $242 a month; Tuesday/Thursday class $161/month
