We are dedicated to creating healthy habits at an early age. From getting the proper amount of phyical activity to making healthyfood choices, our curriculum is designed to develop lifelong habits and have fun while doing it.
- Physical Activity - Each day, your children play games with their peers in the gym or outside when the weather permits. Our early learning classrooms are provided swim lessons every Friday.
- Healthy Meals - Your child shares meals and snacks with their peers, where they learn to make healthy food choices. All meals exceed USDA requirements, as we follow the Healthy Eating Standards put forth by the YMCA of the USA.
- Beyond the Classroom - Children will learn about more than eating when it comes to food. They’ll also get to dig in with hands-on gardening and cooking activities.
