How the YWCA is Promoting Early Education

Monday, April 09, 2012

 

The YWCA of Central Massachusetts will hold an open house to educate residents on the benefits of its child care programs.

The open house, scheduled for April 21st, will run from 9 am to 11 am at the YWCA’s Westborough Child Care Center. The event will give families a chance to see first hand, what the center has to offer.

“We offer the children the opportunity to play, explore, learn and grow by participating in hands on activities that encourage social interaction, as well building a sense of autonomy and creative expression," Luisa Palladino, director of the Westborough Center said. “Our dedicated teachers take pride in their curriculum and encouraging children to participate in new experiences."

The open house will offer a variety of fun events to children, including tumbling, face painting and story time. The whole family can partake in the pancake breakfast and book fair, and there will be time to sample the classroom activities that children will participate in at the YWCA.

The idea for the open house actually came from parents. They presented the idea to The Center as a way to bring more families in and make the experience more fulfilling for everyone involved. Many of the parents believe that once other families see the programs at the Westborough Child Care Center, they will realize how beneficial membership would be to their whole family.

"The YWCA Child Care Center is a fantastic center for children to grow and learn," Courtney Graves, a center parent said. “We have been part of the YWCA family for the last 4 years, and believe that we could not have picked a better center for our children. Through the weekly curriculums, extracurricular activities, such as local field trips, and in-school projects, we have been thrilled with the YW and happily look forward to being there for another 4 years."

The Child Care Center offers a variety of early education programs for infants, toddlers and Pre-School aged students. The infant programs are designed for children 15 months old or younger, and focuses on developing the child’s language and motor skills, along with social development.

The toddler program is designed for children between 15 and 36 months old, and focuses on socialization through sharing, and advancing language and motor skills. The Pre-School program is for children ages three to six years old, and offers children the chance to participate in creative arts, and teaches them reading and math concepts. These students also get to take part in gym, cooking and local field trips.
