Both my children go to the YWCA child center and they absolutely love it. The staff is very educated and nurturing and always ready with an extra hug if your children are having a rough morning. My kids love the big outdoor playground, the music class and circle time. They bring home lots of artwork and best of all, they are learning how to behave even when feeling frustrated and mad. They are given tools that they can benefit from the rest of their lives. Furthermore, the YWCA went above and beyond to help us, when our house accidentally burned to the ground and I can't show enough gratitude to this organization. They truly do save and change lives.
