Please make sure that your child is provided a mask BEFORE entering any of our programs each day. Please share this information with anyone else who may be dropping off or picking up your child. Children and adults will not be allowed in any of our child care facilities or classrooms without a mask. We have provided the mandate below. As always if you have any questions we encourage you to reach out to our management team.
In accordance with the Governor’s new executive order, here are the clarifying requirements for all child care programs to follow:
• Children under 24 months of age shall not wear masks in child care settings.
• Children of any age shall not wear masks during nap time.
• All adults and children over the age of two shall be required to wear a mask, unless there is a documented health reason (including a disability) that would put the individual at risk from wearing the mask.
• Children and adults may remove their masks when outdoors, if they are practicing social distancing.
• Masks shall be worn to the best developmental ability of the child.

The YMCA Child Development Center is a licensed facility for children 6 weeks through 5 years of age. Our center has a play-based philosophy, which fosters the individual child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our professional staff creates an environment that promotes learning in the areas of art, science, math and literacy.Our center embraces early language development through our music, yoga programs. Preschool children participate in weekly special activities such as library time, Spanish and music classes. Children also have daily opportunities to express themselves creatively through play in our “centerbased” classrooms. Our Preschool program uses Creative curriculum.

We provide each child with a hot and nutritious breakfast and lunch as well as a healthy afternoon snack each day. Family involvement is a crucial part of each child’s success in our preschool. Therefore, we keep parents informed with monthly parent involvement activities, newsletters and volunteer opportunities.
