CLOSURE UPDATE: Per mandate from Governor Polis, and because it is the right thing to do, our facilities are closed. Check here for COVID-19 updates. We are running emergency childcare only for families who have no other choice.



YMCA Inspire Preschool Coming to Johnstown!

Located inside our new Johnstown Community YMCA in Johnstown, Colorado, YMCA Inspire Preschool is estimated to open on May 18, 2020. 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!


Please note: Y financial assistance participants may register online after their financial assistance has been approved. CCAP participants may not register online, but must use the online ePACT system for required medical and emergency contact information and policy agreements. CCAP participants may request a registration form from the preschool director.


The YMCA of Northern Colorado uses ePACT, a secure emergency network that we use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Your child will not be able to participate in Y programs without the required paperwork. You will receive an email invitation to create your ePACT account after registering.
