Building strong futures.
Child Care at the Huntington YMCA
helping children develop to their fullest potential.
The Phil Cline Family Y Child Care Program mission is to help children develop to their fullest potential focusing on self-awareness, confidence, feeling of self-worth through a variety of programs.
The teachers will work on the development of interpersonal relationships while exploring with the children their feelings and how to develop conflict resolution skills. The Child Care Program works with each child on the development of values that are the core of the Y and each participant in our programs (honesty, respect, responsibility and caring).
These skills are taught through discussion, interaction, and the programs they participate in each day.
Phil Cline Family Y Child Care Program
This is accomplished by having cooking projects, reviewing the food guide pyramid, having nutritional discussions at meal and snack time, and through daily physical activities that emphasis lifetime exercises and sports.
The Pre-School and Child Care Program have educational components to help each child develop their skills in reading, writing, and math. The school-age After School Program has time scheduled for each child to do their homework with assistance from our teachers.
This program is provided to allow parents more time to spend with their child communicating and interacting at home, knowing their homework has been thoroughly covered.
School-Age Children can be picked up at their school and brought back to Phil Cline Family Y for supervised, child care program (only available for intercity schools and must check with Child Care Center).
Y Child Care Teachers attend local and state training sessions covering a variety of important issues and programs throughout the year.
Background checks are done on all staff associated with the Phil Cline Family Y Child Care Program.
Nutritional snacks and lunch are provided daily for all child care participants.
