CARING FOR KIDS SAFELY
We know that outside responsibility can consume precious family time. That's why when your children are in our care, we consider ourselves an extension of your family. Our program is designed to provide a safe, structured environment that includes physical play, sports and games, homework help, and the ability to engage with mentors (Y staff) who embody the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. In Child Watch, children will enjoy STEM activities, crafts, and outdoor play on our inclusive playground. In Kid Adventure, your children can test their skills on our ninja course and enjoy time outside in our playground that is designed to improve children's social and cognitive growth. In either space, your children will make friends, have fun, and be safe.
