Marleigh's Y Story

Marleigh is a first-year preschool student at the YMCA Preschool Program in Weber County. Marleigh started with no knowledge of letters and numbers and her social skills were limited. After a couple of months at the Y, Marleigh got used to the new environment and routines. Thanks to the patience and hard work of her YMCA teachers and the consistency of the program she now knows her letter, can count well beyond 50, and can write her name and the names of her classmates. She is also developing wonderful relationships with her classmates, teachers, and family members. Her parents said that Marleigh's growth and knowledge is outstanding and that they enjoy seeing her learn about the world around her.
