Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. The Greater Wichita YMCA believes the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That is why our child care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of young children. Our ELC and CDC sites ensure:
- Babies develop bonds of trust and a greater sense of security
- Toddler’s language skills blossom and independence grows
- Preschoolers develop critical social- and cognitive skills
Children served in our ELC and CDC environments become school-ready - academically and socially. More importantly, the children we care for learn how to be their best selves. When combined we see better students today and contributing, engaged adults tomorrow.
