Our Approach

Children learn a lot through interaction and exploration. In other words, playing is learning. Teatime builds organizational skills. Playing with blocks teaches innovation and so on. We take every interaction we have as a learning experience to develop your child’s creative, intellectual, emotional, social and physical skills.

Curriculum

Curriculum

We use the Creative Curriculum® with developmentally appropriate experiences to foster joyful learning, address specific needs, build skills for success and incorporate STEAM activities. The YMCA Healthy Kids Initiative enhances programs by providing exposure to healthy eating, nutrition and physical activity to help develop lifelong habits for kids and families.

Philosophy

Philosophy

Your child’s safety and security, as well as their body, mind and spirit, are our central focus. We incorporate the fundamental focal points of personal development, physical activity, education, awareness and nutrition. We layer in our learning through play and rest and recharge to give your child a healthy, well-rounded foundation to grow.
