The Albany YMCA child care programs are committed to supporting children and their families. Our programs focus on creating a nurturing environment, making friends, providing homework support and physical activity. Parents have peace of mind that their kids are in a safe and positive environment.
The Albany YMCA child care programs are centered around the YMCA philosophy which strives to enhance each child's mind, body and spirit. Children are encouraged to participate in the activities that will allow them to grow into healthy members of our community. Our programs incorporate hands-on learning experiences to teach the values of:
CARING–the ability to show compassion, forgiveness, generosity and kindness.
HONESTY–to speak the truth and behave with integrity and fairness.
RESPECT–understanding and acceptance of other people and different beliefs, empathy for others and self respect.
RESPONSIBILITY–the courage to do what is right, follow through on commitment, service for the community and good health practices.
