Help Desk Software



Children are our future. Every day in YMCA Early Adventures, we help four-year-olds discover their talents and get ready for kindergarten through our collaborative program with Chesapeake Public Schools. YMCA Early Adventures is offered at no cost to participants.

Funded by the Virginia Preschool Initiative Act, we serve children who have been exposed to high-risk factors and situations that might have an adverse impact on their social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. 

Our goals are to help each child:

  • To experience intellectual growth and educational stimulation
  • To become emotionally secure
  • To become socially well adjusted
  • To acquire physical well-being
  • To develop and express individuality through creativity

Our hands-on curriculum is implemented through the use of interest centers such as:

  • Blocks
  • Dramatic play
  • Manipulatives
  • Art
  • Sand & water
  • Language & listening
  • Music
  • Cooking
  • Computers
  • Outside play

All materials within interest centers are multicultural and free of gender bias. Bulletin boards, dress-up clothes, puzzles, books, and music expose the children to the richness of the cultural diversity within the city.

The Y stays involved with your family, even while at home. Parent communication includes home visits, oral and written communication, progress reports and parent-teacher conferences.
