From seed to sprout to tree
We know that in order for children to bloom they must first have strong, healthy roots.
At the Y, we're dedicated to doing all that we can to help your child grow to his or her full potential.
We provide the perfect blend of fun, play, and education that's sure to enrich your child's day -- and give you the peace-of-mind in knowing that your family is safe, well and happy.
A Focus on Quality
All of our Early Care Centers are highly rated from the stringent State of Ohio "Step up to Quality" standards. Our professional staff continually works to keep up-to-date with all state educational requirements, assuring that every child in our care is surrounded by a nurturing environment with an emphasis on safety, security and parent peace-of-mind.
Infant and Toddlers
When you're ready to go back to work, we're ready to help. The staff working in our Infant and Toddler areas are "baby" people. They enjoy giving cuddles and rocking little bundles, caring for the continuous feeding, changing, and personal care for your precious little ones so you can attend to life's other responsibilities.
Preparing a child to have the emotional and educational balance to transition into the kindergarten classroom is paramount to the Y Early Care & Education curriculum. As their time with us is often the first step in being with other children and non-family members, we work to teach sharing, caring, taking turns and learning every day.
Before and After School Enrichment
By providing them with homework assistance, healthy snacks, and activities that encourage learning and positive interaction, your child will have a foundation for lifelong success built on the character values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Summer Day Camp
The fun and learning continues all summer. Locations in Barberton, Cuyahoga Falls, Firestone Park, Green and Wadsworth offer all day themed weeks to keep your school-aged children occupied and motivated.
