From our parents:

“My son absolutely loves his teachers and friends, he has some trouble separating from me and the teachers really handle it in the best way. He is always happy in the pictures and enjoys looking back at them with me at the end of the day. He is always clean and well cared for.”
-Beverly Ferington

“Preschool at Kings Bay Y has been a god send to our family. This program was an exact fit of what we were looking for at the time of deciding where our child was going to attend. Our preschool experience has been rewarding and valuable as we see the skills our child is developing day by day. The teachers are so caring and patient. We would always recommend this program and have had people send their children to Kings Bay Y based on our wonderful experience.”
