More than just child care, the YMCA nurtures the potential of each child. At the Y, kids cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behavior, better health and educational achievement.
With so many demands on today’s families and the increased focus on early development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That’s why the preschool program at the Y focuses on the holistic development of children, providing a safe, healthy, fun place to learn skills, develop healthy relationships and build self-confidence through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
The YMCA After School Program enhances education and provides opportunities that help build interpersonal skills, develop character and inspire discovery in fun and exciting ways. The Y provides transportation to and from the YMCA to many schools in the Whittier City, East Whittier and Lowell Joint School Districts.
Additionally, the Y offers on-site child care at select schools in the Greater Whittier area.
We look forward to partnering with your family to ensure that your child’s school year 2019-2020 is the best it can be!
