Located inside our new Johnstown Community YMCA in Johnstown, Colorado, YMCA Inspire Preschool serves children between 2 1/2-years-old (must be at least 2 years and 6 months of age by start date) and 6-years-old. Our year-round preschool will provide part-time and full-time options.

Inspire Preschool in Johnstown will utilize a curriculum focused on exploration and individualized learning experiences and provide a wide variety of indoor and outdoor play opportunities. Our brand-new preschool will offer sunny classrooms and outdoor playgrounds, and our students will enjoy playing in the Y’s gym, outdoor sports fields and pool.

All enrolled preschool families will receive a free family membership to the Y! Contact the Business Office after you have enrolled in preschool to apply for your free membership. Please note, when you re-enroll for preschool for a new school year, you will need to reapply for your membership.

Universal Preschool Colorado

Our Preschool participates with Universal Preschool (UPK) Colorado. We are a UPK Provider with limited slots. Universal Preschool Colorado was created in statute under HB 22-1295. The Colorado Department of Early Childhood (CDEC) will launch UPK Colorado in the 2023-24 school year, offering a minimum of part-time (10 hours per week) or half-day (15 hours per week) of high-quality, voluntary preschool to every Colorado child in the year before they are eligible to enter kindergarten. UPK Colorado eligibility is independent of a child’s eligibility for CCAP, Head Start, or local preschool program funding, so families may layer these hours on top of their UPK allocation.

Full Day Care

  • Monthly fee for M/W/F: $877
  • Monthly fee for T/TH: $613

Registration is based on continuous enrollment. Registering on a month-to-month basis does not guarantee your child a spot in preschool.

Review policies, ePACT, financial assistance, CCAP, care for children with disabilities, the parent handbook and more.


There is an annual $95 non-refundable registration fee per child. Our registration system will not allow you to enroll until you’ve paid this fee. The registration fee is good for the school year.
