help the child grow emotionally, socially, cognitively, and physically. We feel that Y Wee
Care offers a well-rounded, fun, stimulating, and exciting time for a young child in a
pleasant and caring environment. Because of our facility, we have the unique
opportunity to offer a physical program of swimming and gym. Our staff is qualified by
education and experience and are of the highest character and personal standards.
