For children with special needs, finding before and after school child care can be a challenge. Bailey, who is prone to severe epileptic seizures, doesn't let it stop her from participating in YMCA Before and After School Child Care.
After in-depth training, YMCA staff at Bailey's elementary school developed detailed safety procedures to quickly and safely respond in the event that they needed to respond to an emergency. Even her peers know what to do to ensure Bailey gets the care and attention she needs.
Dani, her mother, finally feels connected to her daughter's progress and activities. "The Y keeps me informed with a daily communication log. I've seen Bailey grow as a person and witnessed her reach out to other children. I would absolutely recommend the Y to any family."
Bailey is able to be herself at the Y. She loves to run and play with friends. And with the care and support of YMCA staff and her peers, she thrives and feel safe.
