For Summer Parents

I enjoy the activities and programs that are offered. My daughter has even taught some of the games to my younger daughter, and now they play together. I also enjoy the anti-racism/anti-bullying program as I believe it is very important to teach tolerance to young individuals.
YWCA Kids Place Parent
The teachers are genuinely interested in our kids and our family as a whole. They are nurturing, kind, and respectful. I appreciate that the staff members ensure it stays safe and the kids are happy.
