PORTAGE | The Portage YMCA's 42-year-old Preschool Academy is a nine-month program for children ages 3 to 5 who are one or two years away from kindergarten.

The teachers help children reach their full potential in an academically structured environment. They work closely with the Portage Township Schools kindergarten teachers to assist the staff in remaining current on all the requirements children will need for school success. As a participant in the preschool, families will have the opportunity to join activities the Y offers.

To enter Pre-K Academy, children needed to be 4-years-old by Aug. 1. For Junior Academy, children need to be 3 by Aug. 1.

A registration form along with a $25 nonrefundable registration fee will hold a spot in the fall program.

Before the start of school, the student will need a program membership if they are not on a family membership. The fee is $75 for the year. This also enables students to participate in many other programs we have for children at the member rate.

For more information, call (219) 762-9622 or email cathi@ymcaofportage.org.
