YMCA of Greater Omaha Early Learning Centers


YMCA Early Learning Centers are one component of the impact the Y makes in the greater Omaha community every day. We know parents want the best for their kids and strive to make our early learning centers a place where children learn the building blocks they need to have the best possible start in their education – and arrive at their first day of kindergarten ready to learn.

Our teachers and staff are guided by our four core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility and focus on supporting the families of the children in our care to strengthen and maintain healthy and happy families.

Our full-day kids will learn in our age-appropriate, center-style school, allowing children to grow in all areas. The Y’s preschools use the Creative Curriculum Gold, which is based on the latest research that the most important years in a child’s life are from birth to 5-years of age.
