YMCA Child Care Programs
Kevin J. Carr, the vice president of administrative services for Southeastern Community Collegein West Burlington, Iowa, also serves as president of his local YMCA. Since 2018, Kevin J. Carr has helped the YMCA meet its programming goals on multiple fronts.
All over the country, the YMCA helps parents take care of their children through a variety of child care programs. These programs, staffed by childhood development experts, help children explore new things and receive care in a safe, trusting environment. They also provide opportunities for children to learn and grow, including homework help and skill development.
For young children, the YMCA offers full-day and partial-day child care, ensuring that parents can work and be confident their children are taken care of. Children in these programs can also participate in the Early Learning Readiness Program, providing experiences similar to preschool.
For older children, the YMCA provides after school childcare. For children dealing with food insecurity, these programs also offer healthy food in addition to academic enrichment.
