Our Child development Learning Center, located just across the street from the Children’s Museum, is a full day licensed child care center. The YMCA’s licensed centers use The Creative Curriculum Gold, which is based on the latest research that shows that birth to 5 years are the most developmental years of your child’s life. Your child’s physical, social/emotional, cognitive and language skills grow in the Y’s safe and nurturing environment. Our preschool learning program promotes reading, math, science and the arts along with using Handwriting Without Tears. Our 5-year-olds graduate kindergarten ready.

Swim lessons, gym classes and nutritional meals are provided.
