Kenosha Child Care for Children ages 2 through Preschool

A safe and positive environment is critical to early childhood development. Here at Kenosha YMCA, we offer child care programs specialized for 2-year-olds through preschool-age children. We care for the children enrolled in our programs as though they were our own.

We Provide Your Children With a Safe and Engaging Environment

When you enroll your child in a new child care program, you trust the caretakers to ensure safety and positivity for your child. At the Y, we care for each child with the utmost respect,  treat them as distinct individuals, and taking responsibility for them and their well-being is our priority. Every parent deserves to be worry-free when they have extended their trust to a child care provider.

The Y’s child care staff are equipped with the knowledge and proper experience required to provide children with an environment they will enjoy being a part of. Our staff works hard every day to maintain an inclusive, positive and nurturing environment for children to interact with each other.

At the Y, integrity is a core value of our child care programs- your trust is our motivation. When your child is in our care, we put their well-being, safety, and happiness above all else.

Child Care for ages 3½ – 5 years

Preschool marks the beginning of a new chapter in a child’s life. Children in preschool take their first steps into formal education, forming lifestyle habits, developing social and emotional behaviors, and much more.

Our preschool child care program aims to educate the children using a Creative Curriculum and nurture healthy lifestyle choices with exercise and nutritionally sound eating. The pillars of this program teach children to:

  • Fostering cognitive skills like literacy, pre-math, and problem-solving
  • Social development in peer cooperation and independence
  • Engaging mind and body through fitness time in our gyms and pools
