With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youths. That’s why child care and early learning programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills; develop healthy, trusting relationships; and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our early childhood learning, before- and after-school programs and our Kids Campus are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids. The Y helps foster confident kids today so they are contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
