Who Makes Us Special: Our Teachers & YOU

     The YMCA is committed to choosing highly dedicated staff to meet the developmental and emotional needs of all children in our program. YMCA's policy exceeds state licensing in regards to CPR and First Aid, ratios and having two staff on duty at all times.

     Highly trained and supportive staff is our priority, which is why we invest in and provide our staff with the best of professional training, enabling them to support your child's development. Staff members and parents regularly discuss children's needs through conversations, conferences, parent advisory councils (PACs), and meetings to assess the needs of families, The YMCA uses newsletters, calendars and bulletin boards to communicate with parents.

     Also, the YMCA works with the PAC by a system of PAC-sponsored activities. open houses, and back-to-school nights.
