These are just a few of the words parents use to describe our Early Childhood Care + educational programs.

For the children, our dedicated and caring staff have incorporated the Y’s ideal of stretching the Spirit, Mind and Body by providing a stimulating atmosphere that promotes social, intellectual and physical development through a hands-on approach to learning.  Our child care, nursery school, and before and after school programs are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
