YMCA Community Child Care CenterLocated at 520 E. Piper St., Macomb IL
The YMCA Community Child Care Center serves the community as a professional in quality child care. Our center is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services. Our staff is required to have a college education and/or early childhood experience and must attend 15 hours of in-service training per year. Additionally, they are certified in CPR, First Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogens/HIV training.
In addition to our classroom, the YMCA Child Care Center has a large gym for indoor play.
Our main objective is to provide a positive atmosphere which will promote the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of each child. Learning experiences appropriate for the developmental age of each group are provided daily.
Field trips are also a part of our curriculum. They may include a picnic; going to the library; a visit to a farm; or just walking around the neighborhood.
We observe six of the major holidays, plus the day after Thanksgiving and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
