"One aspect of our program that sets us apart from others is our focus on character development through the YMCA's core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. We believe children experiencing these values in early childhood will enable them to carry these traits on as they grow older and become more confident, nurturing, and healthy individuals. Another unique aspect of the YMCA is our scholarship program, which assists families in financial need, so their child can attend a quality early childhood program to get the best start in life. This is just another example of how the YMCA fulfills its commitment to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.
Throughout the year, we host special family events like our Family Potluck dinner, Grahams with Grandparents, and our spring Family Picnic and Kindergarten Graduation. Parents have a variety of opportunities to get involved in their child's early learning education through serving on our Family Advisory Council, volunteering for field trips, joining us as a "Celebrity Reader," or assisting us with our annual Mission Campaign.
