YMCA Child Care is a place for children to explore, learn, feel safe, cared for and celebrated. We encourage positive relationships between the children, child care staff and parents to ensure a high-quality experience for everyone.
Physical Education for Homeschool Students
Ages 6 – 14
Let the YMCA be your child’s partner in physical activities. The YMCA Physical Education for Homeschool Students Program is a great way for students to get the most out of homeschooling by combining physical activity, healthy living, socialization, and play into their home school curriculum.
Ages 1.5 – 7 yrs
Introduce the art of tumbling in a fun and active learning environment. Kids build body awareness and self-confidence as Y staff guide and challenge them through a progressive curriculum, offering caring recognition and positive reinforcement.
Tae Kwon Do and Karate build physical fitness, increase self-confidence and respect for self and others, while gaining new skills in a fun and interactive environment.
Reach & Rise ® Mentoring Program
Information for Parent & Program Participants
Reach and Rise is a therapeutic mentoring group created to support youth from ages 8-15. Each week, two safe, supportive and trained adults meet with a group of six students to help them improve self-esteem, decision making skills, school performance, and interpersonal relationships. Together, they share diverse experiences, create meaningful relationships, and develop a stronger sense of belonging within our community.
Better Sitters Today. Better Parents Tomorrow.
Prepare for a future of Babysitting through our Safe Sitter® Workshops. Created by a doctor, this course will teach your teen or adolescent what it takes to be a safe, nurturing babysitter and how to gain the confidence to be successful. These foundational skills can be beneficial throughout life, especially in future interactions with children.
The YMCA stresses child-oriented attitudes by keeping winning in perspective, having fun, improving physical fitness, and working with the whole child. The YMCA wants the quality of play to improve in order to meet the needs of all participants whatever their ability and skills.
The YMCA accomplishes this by training adult volunteers in clinics and workshops that the child comes first and winning comes second. The key for coaches and parents is to keep winning in perspective. Competition will happen in youth sports without any external pressures. It is important to keep competition at a level appropriate for the athlete.
The goal of the Youth Sports program is to help the child grow to his/her fullest potential in mind, body, and spirit. Activity helps the body grow; thinking advances the mind; and belief makes our spirit grow.
