Creative Curriculum

Early childhood education and learning programs, follow the Creative Curriculum®, and make sure that children learn the skills needed to be successful in school. Our centers provide a warm, caring and fun environment that stimulates their natural curiosity and encourages personal expression. Children develop communication, reasoning and problem-solving skills through play, interaction with other children, and exploration of their environment. Early childhood education and learning programs help children grow physically, and mentally, while emphasizing and modeling the character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

Nutrition and Exercise

Healthy meals and snacks are the cornerstone of your child’s learning throughout the day. Smart food choices are taught and modeled by our staff such as drinking water and the importance of all four food groups.

Physical activity is an important part of every day at the Y. Large motor skills are developed through daily active play. Your child’s physical skills are individually strengthened through the use of the Y’s extensive facilities—including playgrounds, gyms, pools and more.

With loads of activity and learning, kids need time to recharge. Rest time is scheduled daily in calming environments with caring supervision.

Safety

Your child’s safety and security is our top priority and is achieved through established and practiced procedures. We take every precaution to insure safety for your child, including:

  • Secure entry
  • Frequent site inspections
  • Maintenance of buildings, playgrounds and equipment
