The “Little Learners” program is a preschool program for kids ages 3 to 5. It’s a day camp right on the grounds of the Fishers YMCA, where your kids will learn the value of sharing, respect, and cleaning up after themselves. This last skill is sure to make any parent breathe a sigh of relief. Children also learn self-esteem, language skills, independence, music, art, and they have plenty of time to run around in the enormous Fishers YMCA gym.
For the older kids, the Fishers YMCA also offers the “Homeschool Enrichment” program. This is a program designed to supplement a traditional homeschooling experience with field trips and educational tours. Participants get a first-hand look at tons of Indianapolis attractions and Indianapolis media vessels, such as the Indianapolis Star, the Indiana War Memorial Museum, Channel 40 WHMB, the Indiana State Museum, and Survive Alive Village on Mass Ave. It’s a great way to get the kids out of the house to receive a good education in Indianapolis!
