We believe all children have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, express themselves, and be nurtured in all their possibility.

With so many demands on today's families and the increased focus on early brain development,
families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That's why child care and early learning programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy trusting relationships, and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

At the Y, babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

The Y is proud to be a collaborative community partner ensuring families have high quality and affordable child care and preschool programs available to them. You are welcome any time, scheduled or unscheduled, to come and tour any of locations and visit your child. Click here for a copy of Mahaska Early Learning Program Parent Handbook.
