Castle Kids Child Development Center

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

The YMCA Castle Kids Child Development Center is committed to providing opportunities for young children to grow at their own pace.  Our program stresses high-quality childcare while nurturing the child's desire to explore, discover, and learn through developmentally appropriate activities.

Our goal is to help children become enthusiastic learners.  We foster an environment that promotes independence, a healthy self-image, and positive social interactions.  Castle Kids strives to maintain and strengthen the family unit by supporting their efforts to build good values in children.  Children are be encouraged to gain an understanding of their community, country, and the world and to develop an appreciation for diversity and uniqueness in others.
 

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES 

The YMCA Castle Kids Child Development Center is a developmental program that places a high priority on meeting individual needs of the child, the parent, and the family.  Our mission is to provide a pathway for learning for young children while ensuring children are safe and happy.

Castle Kids recognizes children's needs are best met when they actively participate in a wide variety of teacher and child initiated activities throughout the day.  Special emphasis is placed on helping children learn through "play" which supports the emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development of the child.  Play encourages children to think, reason, question, and experiment.  This opportunity offered to all children is presented in a warm, loving, and supportive environment that promotes a sense of security and trust.
