Child Care Center

The YWCA Child Care Center brings the mission of the YWCA - eliminating racism and empowering women - to our youngest members.

Children learn to appreciate other cultures, learn basic academics in the everyday world, and enjoy non-violent play. Individual assessments for each child show that the youngest are reaching the early developmental benchmarks, and the oldest are ready for Kindergarten. Parental involvement in the Center is highly encouraged. Foster Grandparents are also very active in the Center.

The Center has space for 80 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. It is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 6:00 pm. Two meals and a snack are provided daily. Swimming lessons and field trips are also offered.
