YMCA Child Development Centers

child development centers

The Harrisburg Area YMCA’s Full Day Child Development Centers provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills. We believe it is never too early to focus on the development of the whole person. We recognize the unique character and temperament of each child and support developmentally appropriate activities to foster emotional, intellectual and physical growth. Our Child Development Centers are a great place for your child to excel in a positive environment.

At the Y, we believe that all families should have access to the quality child care that they need. That’s why we provide the best childcare in the nation – we guarantee the  YMCA is the best place for children to learn and grow.

Our child development programs are based on the four core values of the YMCA: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

During each day in YMCA full day care, our Child Development Centers staff takes the time to listen, guide, teach and play with warmth, patience, understanding and fairness. Each child develops at his or her own pace, which creates an environment of comfort, security, encouragement and fun.
