Our preschool program focuses on ensuring that all students are well prepared for kindergarten! 

YCAM now participates in the PHLPREK Program! 

PHLpreK provides locally funded quality pre-K programs for 3 and 4-year-olds. Funded by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax, PHLpreK provides free, quality pre-K opportunities to 3,300 children across the city.


PHLpreK is Philadelphia’s FREE, new quality pre-K program.


PHLpreK is available to 3 and 4 year old children who reside in the City of Philadelphia. You are likely eligible to enroll your child for the PHLpreK 2020-21 academic year if:

  • Your child has turned 3 or 4 by September 1, 2020

  • You are a resident of Philadelphia

There are no income or employment requirements


If you enroll your child for the traditional school day (5.5 hours), school year, this is free. If you require hours beyond a traditional school day and summer, you will need to pay the PHLpreK provider for the extra hours or take advantage of child care subsidy (CCIS) benefits if you qualify.
