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.




At YMCA Inspire Preschool for ages 2-1/2 to 6, we know that children learn best through meaningful, hands-on experiences. Our talented teachers deliver daily lessons that allow for exploration and individualized learning opportunities for every child. By supporting your child’s academic, social and emotional well-being, they will be set up for a lifetime of learning success. 

Located inside the Ed & Ruth Lehman YMCA in Longmont, we are uniquely equipped to provide our students with an amazing assortment of indoor and outdoor play opportunities. Along with our playground and bike park, we swim in the indoor pool, play in the gym and learn about fruits and veggies at our on-site farm. We’re even adding new preschool enrichment activities taught by our Y sports staff.

The Curriculum

Inspire Preschool utilizes Creative Curriculum, the same program used by St. Vrain Valley Schools. The research-based lessons are designed to build on each child’s strengths and interests while encouraging positive teacher/child interactions. The classroom environment and daily schedule are carefully designed to enhance the curriculum as well. We also use Teaching Strategies GOLD for progress monitoring and kindergarten readiness assessment.
