Our daughter Maycee fell in love with the Y! She went to both the 3 and 4 year old preschool and also childcare. She formed a very special bond with Miss Hayley, one of the leads in daycare. Maycee graduated from the Y and Hayley agreed to go to a movie with her and they have gone every month since then. Maycee is so excited every time we walk into the childcare area and is greeted by Hayley. As a working parent is it so nice to know that our kids are loved at the Y!
