Youth DevelopmentWe believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get.
That’s why child care at the YMCA of San Diego County is about more than just supervising children. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy and trusting relationships, and build self-reliance.
