When Aden started kindergarten, his teachers used sign language to communicate with him because of his lack of communication skills. After overcoming a family struggle and enrolling in YMCA Child Care, he soon started talking with staff and other children again.
"The staff were able to provide structure and develop a relationship with Aden," said Rebecca, Aden's mother. "He's still a little shy, but he has grown so much in his communication skills."
Aden, now 7-years-old, loves the variety of activities available to him like science, art, and writing. With a focus on safety, health, social growth, and academic enhancement, YMCA Child Care provides children with the skills to succeed.
