The Y’s commitment to meeting the needs of the Grays Harbor community is truly shown through the early learning readiness program known as Care & Kids.
Care & Kids provides a stimulating and caring environment to help children (0-5 years) develop their physical, social, and verbal skills. Caregivers learn about childhood development, how to encourage skill building outside of the classroom, and all about the importance of their role as one of the child’s first true teachers.
This 38 week long program, meets twice a week for two hours each session day. Caregivers and children play together in Y led group songs, dance, and story time. Each program day also includes over 10 different learning centers for caregivers and children to complete together, build community, make new friends, and help your students develop the skills they need to be successful and ready for Kindergarten.
With 51 kids and 40 caregivers participating this truly unique program continues to grow and impact our community.
