Why YWCA Children’s Programs?
YWCA Columbus seeks career driven professionals who value the importance of being a positive role model for all children, including the most vulnerable. We hire high-quality staff and provide extensive orientations, free ongoing professional development, support and evaluation.
Our childcare programs build consistency between home and school. We work to communicate with parents, school staff, and children to develop reliable strategies for academic success and behavior management and support. Through our close partnerships with schools, we provide choice-based learning emphasizing social emotional development, reading, STEAM as well as physical development. Additionally, we provide a trauma informed environment where children can be successful, involved learners.
Our educators maintain ODJFS Step Up to Quality standards and training requirements of up to 30 hours of professional development each year. YWCA Columbus encourages staff members to model what it looks like to be a life-long learner by supporting training efforts and professional development interests.
About Our Programs
Safe & Sound
The YWCA Safe & Sound Child Care Center, housed at the Family Center since October 2005, is a state licensed five-star Step Up to Quality-rated program. We provide high-quality care and education to homeless children six weeks to 13 years of age as their parents spend their day searching for employment and permanent housing. Homelessness comes with a lot of transition and exposure to traumatic-related events that cause children to be delayed in their development and learning. We provide trauma-informed care in an environment that focuses on the child’s social and emotional needs.
Our staff have more than 50 years of combined experience in the early childhood field. Most staff have a degree or possess a CDA Credential. To further support their professional growth, staff attend 30 hours of training every two years as well as participate in staff professional development days several times per year.

YWCA Kids Place has more than 30 years of experience providing affordable, dependable, high-quality, year-round child care for families in the Gahanna and Westerville school districts. Our programs are conveniently located in your child’s elementary school to promote consistency and continuity for your child’s transition from school to Kids Place.
Kids Place educators are expected to maintain ODJFS standards and training requirements, as well as complete Step Up to Quality-approved professional development hours. YWCA Columbus encourages staff members to model what it looks like to be a life-long learner by supporting training efforts and professional development interests.
