Studies show that upon entering kindergarten, children who participate in early childhood education programs demonstrate greater language, literacy and math development than children who go directly from home care to kindergarten.
For more than 100 years, the YWCA has been providing high-quality early childhood education for children while empowering mothers and fathers to pursue their career and educational goals. The Early Learning Center offers a uniquely diverse setting providing child care for families who live and work throughout Greater Cleveland, providing high-quality early education for children ages six weeks to five years. Experienced educators teach a child-centered curriculum, and children learn from a young age to celebrate differences.
Preparations are underway for application to the National Association of Education to Youth Children (NAEYC), an organization dedicated to improving the well-being of young children, with a focus on quality educational and developmental services.
We provide transformative services in three focus areas. Get involved!
