With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get.
That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Before & After School Programs
When children enter a YMCA Before & After School program, another world of imagination and growth opens up.
In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, kids participate in interactive learning models that engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with their homework from trained YMCA staff and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence
Early Education Centers & Preschool Programs
YMCA Early Child Development Centers focus on providing a safe and nurturing environment where children are encouraged, challenged and engaged. Our program delivery is rooted in our four core values of caring, respect, responsibility and honesty. This approach, coupled with our experienced and trained staff, provides the atmosphere that children need to grow up healthy, happy, and prepared to face their futures.
With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, Y afterschool programs serve kindergartners through middle schoolers with a variety of programmatic and activity options to explore and develop their interests and talents.
