With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get.  That’s why child care at the Lake County YMCA is about more than looking after kids.  It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn, developing healthy, trusting relationships and building self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
