Nurturing the Potential of Every Child

The Community YMCA is dedicated to developing the full potential of the youth in our care. For over 40 years, the Y has been providing safe, nurturing and academically challenging Preschool programs for families in Monmouth County.  Parents rely on the Y for our time-tested preschool  guided by caring professionals in safe, cheerful and clean facilities.

The Y offers a dynamic preschool program in Matawan and is proud to partner with the Red Bank School District to serve more children and families with preschool programs.


Learning should always be fun! A happy school experience now will start each child down the road to a future of academic success. Our program provides the values and skills that are vital building blocks to a child's success in school.

  • We provide safe, supervised and enriching environments with a variety of program activities featuring academic, recreational, artistic, and fitness components to support a child’s social, emotional and physical development.
  • We support parents by providing a safe place for their children so they have peace-of-mind and can work without worry.
  • Our certified teachers are CPR, first-aid and Epi-pen certified, and committed to interacting with each individual child, so they are happy and engaged while in our care.
  • Financial assistance is available for all YMCA programs, for those who qualify.
