School Age Child Careadmin2019-07-18T10:36:39-04:00
With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life.Because of the Y community, kids in neighborhoods around the nation are taking more interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, kids learn character shapes responsible decisions, the value of social responsibility and the gift of giving back, good sportsmanship and, most importantly, they learn to be themselves. We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
In a time when schools and families are cutting back to basics, your child, more than ever, needs the Y! Sports, homework support, exposure to the arts, technology and time to have fun with friends are just a few highlights!
