GENERAL INFORMATION

YMCAs are the nation’s largest provider of childcare. We provide high-quality programs that are family-centered and values-based to nurture children’s healthy development. We provide a safe place for children to learn foundational skills, develop healthy trusting relationships, and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Financial assistance is available.  Child Care Financial Assistance Application Form.

Here are the childcare and preschool programs we offer:

SHOOTING STARS

A Preschool Experience for 3-4-year-olds.

Shooting Stars integrates the YMCA facilities with a traditional preschool experience. Children will have an opportunity to develop an increased ability to think, reason, question, and experiment. They learn how to follow directions and make choices in an environment filled with language and enrichment opportunities. 2020-2021 INFO

4K PROGRAM

The YMCA in conjunction with the Superior School District provides a site for 4-year-old kindergarten. This program is free of charge for children in the Superior School District. Your child will learn through hands-on experiences, age-appropriate activities, and freedom of movement. We foster a child’s independence and individual learning styles. Two days of swimming are included. Registration opens February 4th. Register online on the Superior School Districts website. http://www.superior.k12.wi.us/

WRAP AROUND CARE

Does your child need care before or after Shooting Stars or 4K? Children will enjoy extended hours at the YMCA. Rest time, activities, free play, gym time, and much more await your child’s day. You will have the peace of mind knowing your child is in a safe and nurturing place while you are busy.

HELP US BUILD OUR PLAYGROUND

Our outside playground area is in need of several improvements. Currently, there is no source of shade, no storage to secure toys, and many pieces of our playground equipment is outgrown or in rough shape.

Our goal is to raise $2,500+ to provide our playground space with the following:

1. An 8’x8’ shed which will provide secure storage for sandbox toys, balls, etc. This will also consist of removing a portion of the existing chain link fence to make the door opening flush with the fence.

2. Shade from the sun such as attachable sun tarps.

3. Tower swing set

4. Playhouse with accessories

5. New toys such as kick balls and other outside learning activities

With your help, our playground will be enjoyed by many children for years to come.
