At the Southwest Family YMCA Child Development Center, we meet your child's needs by giving them positive attention and encouraging their social development. The children we serve range in age from six weeks to five years old. We follow the Creative Curriculum so that your child is equipped with the essential skills for lifelong learning.
Our preschoolers are taught to utilize their creativity through our research-based, age-appropriate curriculum that includes an appreciation for language and literature, listening, speaking, reading and writing by using a mix of strategies and activities.
