Our child care programs are designed to offer experiences that enhance and enrich each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. The YMCA believes that good child care is good family care. Staff are certified in education, child development, and other associated fields. All staff are certified in CPR/First Aid, and undergo two background checks prior to employment. YMCA staff members are partners with parents, working together to help children grow healthy, happy, and strong.
