Early Childhood Education 
(formerly known as Childcare)

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.   Babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age kids make friends,  learn new skills and do homework.  Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

 

LICENSED CARE

http://mtrymca.org/sites/mtrymca.org/assets/images/blog/childcare.png

Our centers, licensed by the State of Wisconsin's Department of Health and Family Services, nurture the whole child.  We provide developmentally age-appropriate programs, which are committed to nurturing individual differences and encouraging the social, intellectual, physical, mental and spiritual growth of the child.  USDA approved meals, including breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks are provided.  Swimming lessons, gymnastics, and other youth sports are offered throughout the year for children three to six years old.

  • One-time registration fee per family of $40.
  • Multi-child discount of $10 per week for families that have youth or family memberships and attend full weeks.
  • Tuition is based on your contracted days.
  • All weeks will be charged regardless of attendance.
  • Tuition is due by noon each Friday (unless another agreement is in place with the Director) to continue receiving care.
