Child Care & Full time preschool

The YMCA Youth Development Centers are high-quality, values-oriented, state-licensed facilities for children newborn – pre-kindergarten with a safe atmosphere and a caring staff. The YMCA Youth Development Centers are open from 6:30 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday – Friday. The staff is made up of baccalaureate degree teachers, CDA degree teachers and experienced assistants. The YDC utilizes developmentally appropriate curricula to develop children socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.


At all YDC locations we work with your child to make sure he or she receives the best quality learning experience possible.

As a Bright & Early North Dakota Program we:

· take extra steps in health & safety

· create an environment that inspires learning through play

· develop activities that encourage language, creativity, science and  other skills

· provide nurturing relationships and positive interactions with children

Our program goes above and beyond the basic licensing standards of North Dakota and has completed an intensive observation process to earn a multi star quality rating.
