Our school-age child care programs use the YMCA - A Place to Connect curriculum which focuses on play-based learning. Research shows that children flourish in programs that are structured to let them shape the program. This means providing choice, opportunities for leadership, a focus on strengths, and a place to naturally develop skills and relationships.
