Jewett Center

The Jewett Center is a full-time child care center located just blocks from the YMCA in downtown Yakima. We care for babies from 8 weeks old to children age 5. Our child care programs are designed to enhance and enrich each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. We partner with parents, working together to help children grow healthy, happy, secure, and strong. Our caring staff is certified in education, child development, and other associated fields. Our staff is also certified in CPR/First Aid and undergo two background checks prior to employment.
