Early Learning Readiness (ELR) is a FREE nationwide preschool program, provided by the YMCA and in partnership with Chattanooga 2.0.

We use Chattanooga Basics to guide families to make everyday tasks fun opportunities for learning!

  • 80% of brain development happens before 3  years of age. ELR helps families lay a strong foundation for life-long learning. 

Our program is designed to help close the achievement gap for at-risk children ages birth-4 years old, and our class meets at 3 locations across Chattanooga. See class details and times on image at right.
