Responding to our Partners and Families

We use survey feedback to grow to fit our families’ needs.

We’d Like More Connection to the Y

To ensure families have opportunities to participate in other YMCA activities outside of child care, we provide all of our school age, full-day child care and full-day preschool participants complimentary YMCA youth memberships, program discounts and offer each family a discounted family membership rate.

Better Communication

To improve our communication between staff and parents, we distribute a monthly newsletter and site/program specific important information to families both electronically and at program locations.

Health Matters

To improve the nutritional aspect of our daily snack menus, the Y follows national guidelines for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA). We now serve a fruit or vegetable each day.

Expanded Programming

To help working families with Kindergartners, we operate our full day Kindergarten Plus program which provides educational enrichment on days when Kindergartners are not in school. Our degreed teachers partner with district Kindergarten teachers to ensure alignment with the Kindergarten curriculum. We are currently looking for space for an additional Kindergarten Plus program in Lewis Center for the 2018-2019 school year.
