York YMCA announces Childcare program is open to enrollment for families
“For the past couple months, we have been actively preparing to safely offer childcare in light of COVID-19. Many new protocols and procedures have been put in place in accordance with the latest directives from the CDC as well as ensuring staff members have had extensive training on these changes”, stated Child Development Director Ashley Zurawski.
· Curbside drop off and pick up
· Health screenings prior to entering the building
· Masks for anyone 2 and older
· Social distancing when possible
· Cleaning high touch surfaces at least once an hour
· Cleaning toys between each use
· All hard to clean toys have been put away
· All nap items are being washed onsite daily
· Nothing going back and forth between home and the facility (no outside food, drink, or toys)
The Child Development program is licensed by the PA Department of Human Services. We are currently enrolling in our toddler room where exploration, social skills and language development are key focus areas.
In addition, the York Branch YMCA has two preschool classrooms for children ages 3-5. Using Creative Curriculum and learning centers, lesson plans are developed around the observed interests of the children. We strive to develop unique and enriching activities that encompass creative thinking, exploration of science and mathematics, inquiry, discovering, beginning literacy and community involvement.
The preschool classrooms implement the P.A.T.H.S. (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) Curriculum to enhance social emotional development. Within this curriculum, children learn to recognize their feelings and appropriate ways to express them.
