The Five Star Kids Pre-K Programs, at the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, offers “full day” and “school day” classes for children who turn 4 years old on or before Dec. 31 of the school year for which they are applying. Each child's growth will be monitored through observations, portfolio documentation, developmental checklists, and the use of assessment data to ensure all students are meeting important learning milestones. Children will be prepared for a successful transition to kindergarten while they become independent, enthusiastic, and self-confident learners.

        • Positive, caring, and respectful relationships with highly-qualified teachers;

        • A clean, welcoming, and well-organized classroom where children can flourish academically and meet personal developmental milestones;

        • Opportunities for structured and free-play where children connect and build lasting friendships;

        • Parents’ peace of mind, knowing their greatest assets are safe, happy, and valued;

        • Open communication where parents are partners, ensuring the greatest possible growth and development for their child(ren);

        • Our High-quality curriculum is also used by the City of Virginia Beach Public School Pre-K program to meet the needs of each student; and

        • Wrap-Around Care, if needed, to provide full daycare for an additional fee.*
