YWCA LINC Preschool Program
The LINC Preschool Program is run in partnership with Conestoga College. Children of a parent attending the Conestoga College LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) Program in Cambridge are eligible to attend. Please contact Conestoga College for more information about this program.

The LINC Preschool program is a high quality, licensed learning environment committed to the unique needs of children whose second language is English. The LINC Preschool focuses on healthy child development and early learning and provides parenting resources. Using the philosophy of Reggio Emilia, the program is play-based concentrating on the whole child.

Early exposure to programs in English reduces the language barrier in junior and senior kindergarten: a key element in student success. The Preschool Staff support the use of English in their curriculum and engage the parents to assist with simple tasks and directions. Songs, stories and computer activities are delivered in English.
