YMCA Day Care Teachers & Staff

Our teachers and staff are the kindest people you’ll ever meet. And your child is important to every single one of them.

We’re committed to giving your child an enriching experience that sets them up for success for years to come. No matter how they learn, our teachers can personalize the curriculum to meet the academic needs of your child.

Proven Leaders in Kindergarten Readiness

Ninety-eight percent of graduating YMCA preschool and pre-kindergarten students exceed Twin Cities kindergarten readiness standards. From the beginning stages of life, the Y provides a nurturing environment for your child to learn, grow and thrive.

Kindergarten readiness is only the beginning. The YMCA is your partner beyond the classroom to ensure readiness in every stage of family life.

How We Teach

Every time of day, especially playtime, is an opportunity to learn. Our staff intentionally uses every interaction with your child to help them build new skills.

Rooted in the Y’s core values—caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and equity—we create a trusting environment that allows your child to master literacy, problem-solving skills, as well as social and physical development.

Accreditation Matters

YMCA child care and preschool programs are accredited by NAEYC—the stamp of quality when it comes to early childhood learning. NAEYC promotes high-quality education from birth through age eight by connecting child care practice and policy with evidence-based research and training.
