Child Development Center

The YMCA Child Development Center is a licensed facility for children 6 weeks through 5 years of age. Our center has a play-based philosophy, which fosters the individual child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our professional staff creates an environment that promotes learning in the areas of art, science, math and literacy.Our center embraces early language development through our music program and Baby signs (a sign language program). Preschool children participate in weekly special activities such as swim lessons, library time, gymnastics and music classes. Children also have daily opportunities to express themselves creatively through play in our “centerbased” classrooms. Our Preschool program uses “Handwriting Without Tears” curriculum. This program is designed to make handwriting easy and fun to learn for your child.

We provide each child with a hot and nutritious breakfast and lunch as well as a healthy afternoon snack each day. Family involvement is a crucial part of each child’s success in our preschool. Therefore, we keep parents informed with monthly parent involvement activities, newsletters and volunteer opportunities.
