The Victoria Family YMCA, in partnership with Victoria College, will open its new Early Learning Center for children ranging in age from 18 months to 5 years.

The center will serve as a year-round preschool and features active mind, active play curriculum designed to enhance spatial learning and development, according to a news release from the YMCA.

The Victoria Family YMCA's program will be an all-day preschool with four separate classrooms - 18-23 months, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds and 4- to 5-year-olds.

The curriculum will be dedicated to age-appropriate enrichment activities that include art, music, literacy work, science and physical activity. In addition, there will be parent handouts and child progress reports designed to encourage follow-up activities at home.

The Y and Victoria College are committed to nurturing the potential of every child and are addressing the academic achievement gap through this early learning readiness center, according to the news release.

The center opens Aug. 4 and will operate from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Participants who register before Aug. 1 will get the $45 registration fee waived.

The weekly rate for 18- to 23-month-olds is $107 for Victoria College students and $125 for the community. The weekly rate for 2- to 5-year-old care is $94 for Victoria College students and $110 for the community.
