We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.



Welcome to the Palomar Family YMCA Preschool. Our Preschool is licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing. We offer quality care and the excellent standards of the YMCA.

The first five years in your child’s life are the most formative ones in his/her entire development. We hope that your family, and especially your children, can feel at home in our center. We assure you that our nurturing, friendly staff will make your time here an experience to remember.

YMCA Character Development

The Palomar Family YMCA participates in the Character Development program, which focuses on four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Learning each of these values is vital to the growth and development of children. These values will be incorporated into various planned activities, as well as using teachable moments that the children so often provide.
