We provide a nurturing environment and enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. Our teachers focus on learning skills that are necessary for success in school and in life. Getting along with other children, sharing, taking turns and working in a group are a natural part of playing games or learning a new craft. We strive to meet the developmental needs of each individual child by working in partnership with their families.

Our full-day, state-licensed YMCA Early Childhood Education Centers care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. The YMCA has made a commitment to quality and safety by striving to surpass State of Wisconsin Licensing Standards and by working to achieve national accreditation at each of our centers.  

All three of our Early Childhood Education Centers have been awarded the highest rating from DCF’s Youngstar rating system. This five-star system is based on education, learning environment, business practices and the health and well being of children.


Our programs create experiences that allow all children to:

  • Feel happy and confident in themselves.
  • Feel comfortable interacting and communicating with others.
  • Feel safe and secure in a loving and nurturing environment.
  • Support and strengthen the family unit.
  • Open the doors to an excitement and joy for learning.

We help children reach their potential by:

  • Developing self-awareness, confidence and self-worth
  • Developing interpersonal relationships
  • Developing values
  • Developing literacy and school readiness skills
  • Developing physical skills
  • Focusing on health and nutrition
