Ninety percent of a child’s brain development occurs before the age of 5.

That means your child’s brain develops more quickly from birth to 5 than it ever will again, according to a news release from Kosciusko County YMCA. These early years are the best opportunities for a child’s brain to develop the connections needed for a healthy, capable, successful adulthood and help your children understand life skills such as motivation, self-regulation, problem-solving and communication skills.

To continue to meet the needs of the community and to lead in the development of a future generation of Kosciusko County residents, the Parkview Warsaw YMCA is again offering its Early Learning PreSchool Program, stated the release. This program is available to both YMCA members and the community

It is focused on building foundations in language arts, mathematics, social-emotional skills, play, science, social studies, creative arts and a child’s growth and physical health.
