We recognize that all children progress through the same stages of development at their own rate. Our program gives us flexibility to accommodate these different rates through the use of learning centers.

Staff

Several staff members have degrees in early childhood or elementary education. Staff is continually trained and furthering education in the area of early childhood. All are required to complete 24 hours of training each year and are CPR certified. We have a warm, caring and friendly staff.

Discipline

Rules are centered on character development and the YMCA’s core values of CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY. Teachers use rules consistently to reinforce positive behavior.
