Yardville Pre-School


Opened in September 2004, the Yardville CYO Pre-school quickly established itself as one of the top Pre-schools in Mercer County. Our school, for 3- 5 years old, is a state licensed facility with extremely small class sizes and excellent staff to child ratios.


Our head teacher/ supervisor, Kate Monroe, leads the qualified & experienced staff. The Pre-school staff takes pride in creating a fun, clean, safe, learning environment for young children. The Yardville CYO Pre-school's curriculum follows the 'Creative Curriculum' and focuses on the whole child. The children are engaged in beginning math activities, imaginatie play, creative arts, emergent literacy lessons, and so much more!


We offer flexible schedules, affordable rates, and high quality programming. A morning & afternoon snack, school t-shirt, and field trips are included in the monthly tuition. For the most part, we operate under the same calendar as the Hamilton Twp. School District.

Yardville Counselor - In - Training (C.I.T.) Program

This Program is designed to train 14 and 15 year old CYO Day Camp graduates with the skills to become successful Junior and Senior Counselors. Eligible (former CYO Campers) and interested candidates should contact the CYO in February to receive an application packet. All candidates would need to fill out an application, write an essay on why they would like to be a Camp Counselor, submit their most recent report card proving passing grades, and interview with one of our full-time staff members.


A one time, $25.00 application fee is required. Second year, 15 year olds re-applying do not need to submit an essay for the second year, however, they still need to re-apply, submitting their report card, and possibly re-interviewing. The Program is very competitive, and spaces are limited, not guaranteed for being a Day Camp graduate.


Costs of the Program are as follows for 14 year olds: $100.00 for session 1 and $75.00 for sessions 2, 3, and 4. There is not cost for 15 year olds, and second year 15 year olds are paid $6.00 per hour. We do provide a complimentary lunch for each CIT; however, we do not provide transportation. Candidates can be chosen to work the entire Summer, or by the session (s). In conjunction with the CIT Program we also offer a 4 week Teen Travel Camp Program for 14 and 15 year olds.
