Our family has been fortunate to use the YMCA childcare program for almost 10 years. We first picked the childcare program at the YMCA because we knew our child would be in a room that was targeted to their age. Over the years my children have developed relationships to last a lifetime and have learned educational skills as well as physical skills. It has been a huge convenience to sign our kids up for the YMCA's school age programs. Since childcare is in the same building the teachers have been able to take our kids to classes like swim, t-ball, kickball and sort-a-sport. This has allowed them to experience more activities at a younger age.
