Laurens Y- Child Development Center (300 West Main Street)
Welcome to the LAURENS YMCA Child Development Center (Y CDC). We are excited you have chose us to entrust the care of your child with us!
Our program is founded on Christian values and principles and is committed to meeting the individual needs of children through a challenging and nurturing environment. We provide a safe and healthy atmosphere for children to grow socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and creatively. By using an interactive Montessori based curriculum, children will learn, primarily through play, with their interests being the motivating factor for the learning that takes place. In small groups the children will participate in activities that reinforce what they are learning or going to learn in school.
Afterschool participants will receive help with their homework, engage in activities that build team work, and participate in what educators tell us children need most after a long day at school– a chance to run, jump and play! Our afterschool program is intended to serve as a “bridge” between school and home.
At the Y CDC, we understand the value of a highly trained, professional staff. Our staff of warm, caring, professional childcare teachers maintain a positive and stimulating atmosphere where your child is cared for and respected. Each of our teachers is certified in CPR, First Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogens. Additionally, our teachers receive a minimum of 15 hours of professional development training annually. This training is approved by DSS, SCCCD, First Steps and Redwoods. All this training is directly related to the care of young children. You are an important part of our Y CDC family and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your precious children with us.
