Milford YMCA Preschool receives donation

On behalf of Global Healthcare Management of Milford, Jon Letko, owner and CEO, donated funds and computer equipment to the Milford YMCA Preschool to upgrade school communication capabilities and classroom technology. The Milford YMCA Preschool has a rich history of providing quality programs to the community.

GHCM's financial contribution was used to expand the Preschool's IT capabilities. The Milford Preschool now has Wi-Fi capability throughout the school. Teachers in all classrooms are equipped with handheld tablets which enable photo-documentation of child-learning. The teachers can photograph children at work and print those photos, giving parents the opportunity to see how learning happens at the Preschool. In addition to the financial support, GHCM provided classroom computers so the children can build computer skills, as well as laptop computers for the teachers for documentation and curriculum planning.

"The Milford YMCA Preschool has so much to offer young children in their first school experience," said Letko. "I am happy to have become involved this year with the Milford YMCA Preschool to help support their efforts in bringing the highest quality early childhood education to Milford area families. As the school year progresses, I will continue to work with the staff to offer other opportunities to help enrich their programs."

"We could not be more thrilled to embark on a new partnership," stated Michael Reisman, Director of Early Childhood Education for the Hunterdon County YMCA. "The Preschool is a great place for children to learn, and families to connect. This generosity helps us expand our community outreach and enhance the classroom experience for our students."

The Milford YMCA Preschool is located at 70 Bridge Street in Milford, NJ. The Preschool offers classes for children age 2 1/2 through 5 years and runs from September through June. Enrollment is currently open for the 2018-2019 school year. Two, three and five day schedules are available, with the option of 1pm or 3pm dismissal for the Pre-K class.
