Belonging is just the beginning...

"It’s hard trusting just anyone with your child, especially when your child has special needs. Our first son Jackson was born with Down syndrome and when it was time for me to pursue my career, Y Child Care was the only place I wanted him to go. The Y put me at ease and made my son’s sense of belonging a priority. I like that the Y follows healthy eating guidelines, that their educators are well equipped with the knowledge and tools to help make every child feel safe and loved, and that the Y values inclusion and modifies programs so that every child has the ability to learn and grow. We now have our second son Blake enrolled in Y Child Care and we really feel our kids have developed a sense of community by being at the Y- I love that and I feel that’s how it should be."
