Our Mission

Our mission is to create a safe space for children to be themselves, build community, and learn to be leaders. We accomplish this by offering quality enrichment and development opportunities for children, delivering peace of mind for parents, and empowering the missions of schools.

Our Legacy

The Y has been a childcare leader in our communities for generations. As a vital partner in our region, YMCA Child Care programs nurture a fun, collaborative, and safe environment for children to express themselves and enable parents to navigate busy schedules and workdays with peace of mind.

Our Approach

We offer a variety of programs that aim to empower children to learn and be champions of their own education. Through programs such as our Before and After School Care, Early Learning, and Summer Day Camps and Break Camps, the Y continues a longstanding tradition of youth development to strengthen communities by empowering young people. The Y is dedicated to fulfilling our learners' social, emotional, and educational needs. We believe enrichment forms with the knowledge that not every systematic approach to education can apply to every learner. That is why we meet students, families, educators, districts, and administrators where they are to support and uplift our mutual goals and missions.

Caring Curriculum

 

The YMCA believes quality enrichment starts with meeting individual students where they are. The SCALED Learning™ curriculum offers innovative elements such as STEM, literacy, arts, Career-Connected Learning, and more. Kids in our programs benefit from a hands-on learning experience that is fun, engaging, and attentive to their needs.
