"The Child Development Center's educational philosophy is based on a contemporary understanding of how children develop and learn. We strive to create safe, nurturing, child-centered environments that are age-appropriate. We are concerned with all aspects of a child's development, including the emotional, social, physical, cognitive and creative. Respect for individual needs and the development of self-esteem in each child is fostered. The multi-ethnic emphasis of the YWCA encourages familiarity with and respect for all cultures. A part of our mission is to have the capacity to provide childcare for children living in temporary crisis care centers. We support and work with parents as the primary caregivers for their children.
