At Ys Care creating a brighter future,

We aspire to make a positive impact in our community by providing high-quality preschool education to children and families from homeless, transitioning, or low-income circumstances through our Ys Care Childrens Program. Children 2 to 5 years old are welcome in our program that provides a safe environment and year-round open enrollment for up to 20 participants.

With a full-day, full-year Head Start Preschool Program, the Ys Care Childrens Program also provides child care assistance to homeless and transitional families for 90 days with our highly experienced and supportive teachers and dedicated parent-teacher partnerships. To foster such relationships, we offer opportunities for parent education and involvement via classes, events, and individualized support services. Community resources and referrals for childcare funding, health care, housing, emergency funding, and family support are also available.

The Ys Care Childrens Program classroom structure is based upon a creative curriculum model that provides a well-rounded early education experience through a center-based, child-friendly environment. This curriculum helps prepare children to enter kindergarten, ready to learn, and to work with others.
