YMCA Playing to Learn is a child care curriculum that addresses the training and continuing education of early childhood educators employed by the YMCA and delivers on our promise to continuously improve the quality of programs and services provided to children.
We believe that YMCA Playing to Learn is the best approach to ensure a child's continued enthusiasm and capacity for life-long learning. It provides an understanding of how play offers the foundation for learning to read and write and for learning mathematics, science and technology. It provides early childhood educators with the skills to prepare spaces that are more conducive to learning and the best practices to encourage quality learning experiences.
