Welcome to the Chickadee preschool at the Y!

The Mount Desert Island YMCA provides a safe and active environment for your child to develop socially, emotionally, and academically.

Preschool Program

Our Chickadee Preschool Program is open to potty-trained children ages 3+.

There are three and five-day/week options. Our preschool is open from 7:30 am - 3:30 pm. If families need care after 3:30 pm you can enroll your child into our afterschool program online or through our front desk. 

Preschoolers have scheduled time in the pool, the gym, at the town library, and outside at the playground. They are involved with our preschool-age programming at the YMCA such as Preschool yoga, swim lessons, tumbling, and Kids in Motion each week, and the quality licensed educational programming.


Pay weekly with the auto draft. All enrolled preschoolers will receive a free Y membership.


Scholarship assistance available for those that qualify, see membership page for details.
