Y’s Care

We provide high-quality preschool education to children and families from homeless, transitioning, or low-income circumstances through our Y’s Care Children’s Program.

Children 2.5-5 years old are welcome in our program which provides a safe environment for up to 20 participants. Community resources and referrals for childcare funding, health care, housing, emergency funding, and family support are available. In addition to an ECEAP and community preschool program, YWCA also provides child care assistance to homeless and transitional families for up to 90 days through the Homeless Child Care Program.

We also offer opportunities for parent education and involvement in classes, events, and individualized support services. Our philosophy is inspired by the world-renowned schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and our image of the child as a competent and motivated learner, guides our teaching. Children learn best in relationship to others and our goal is to help children learn the skills they will need to thrive in the 21st century through collaboration, critical thinking and reasoning, taking on challenges and invention.
