Childcare & Early Education

2014-2015 Parent Handbook

With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Y is about more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn fundamental skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. For fee and program information please call 908 464 8301. Registration is in person only.
