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 5-6 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 Pre-K Class graduates kindergarten ready.
