"The Bath Area Family YMCA Child Care Programs offer opportunities for children to interact in an inclusive, child-directed environment. We focus on learning through the developmental areas of cognitive, language, social- emotional and physical development, utilizing "play" as the focal point for all learning. We monitor and assist children in the acquisition of new skills, believing that children learn at their own pace, developing skills, as they build upon gained knowledge. Families are an integral part of our program. Teachers help to introduce diversity through cultural, physical and economic differences, while working with the children and families involved in our programs. Our goal is to create an environment that nurtures, encourages respect, promotes self-esteem and trust. Our hope is that the experiences we offer will promote unique and positive outcomes for the children and families we serve."
