Valparaiso Family YMCA


We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. We believe in providing a safe, nurturing environment for children to grow and develop social skills.

The goals of YMCA Child Care Program is to help children develop to their fullest potential, to support and strengthen the family unit, deliver childcare in a safe and positive environment, to teach, model, celebrate, practice, praise, and reinforce the four values of character development: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility and to foster health and well-being for children and families.

Qualified staff foster social, emotional, physical, and educational growth through developmentally appropriate activities based on the Creative Curriculum. We believe children learn best through play and experiences and strive to offer variety each day. Some of these experiences include swim lessons, music, art, dramatic play and outdoor activities.
