Early Learning / Preschool
Here at the ELC we strive to make your child’s daycare experience one of a kind. With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That’s why child care and early learning programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Strong Beginnings Create Bright Futures!
Children are like sponges - they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our child care, after school and Child Watch programs are staffed with many years of experience and teachers who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, as well as the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other. At the Y, babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
We offer quality care for infants through preschoolers, enabling parents and family members to go to work knowing their children are in a safe, enjoyable, and stimulating environment. We take great pride in knowing that our Early Learning Center is helping shape the development of our kids, as well as the curriculum and activities they encounter each day.
