Armed Services YMCA Hawai`i early childhood education programs strengthen military family support systems by decreasing isolation, connecting families with community, and developing strong social networks, while at the same time making certain children have a strong early education foundation. This is especially critical for military families new to the island, new to parenting, or experiencing deployment.
We believe that all military children deserve access to high-quality programs that nurture their social, emotional, physical and academic development; programs that provide them with a safe and nurturing environment, access to caring and invested adults and access to engaging enrichment activities. Our early childhood education programs follow YMCA of the USA Infant-Toddler and Pre-school Guidelines, use evidence-based curriculum and developmentally appropriate practices that play a vital role in helping children achieve their fullest potential.
Our early childhood education programs include:
Parent Participation Preschool
Operation Little Learners: Early Learning Readiness
