The YMCA and USD 259 work together to provide child care centers at most of our Wichita high schools. These centers provide child care services for USD 259 students with children, children of district employees, and if any spaces remain, children from the general community.

This high quality and affordable child care plays an important role in the Career and Technical Education programs of USD 259, providing observation experiences and serving as training labs for vocational students.

Our philosophy is to create a learning environment for children, as well as creating an "extended" family atmosphere.
