Early Learning Center at St. Anthony's Church

YMCA Early Learning Center at St. Anthony Child Development Center

YMCA Early Learning programs make sure that children learn the skills needed to be successful in school. Our centers provide a warm, caring and fun environment that stimulates their natural curiosity and encourages personal expression. Children develop communication, reasoning and problem-solving skills

through play, interaction with other children, and exploration of their environment. YMCA Early Learning programs help children grow physically, and mentally, while emphasizing and modeling the character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
