WOODSON YMCA LICENSED ALL DAY
Child Care Centers
Learn, Grow and Thrive
Families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. We support children 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, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That’s why our child care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.
Whether you’re a new parent looking to learn how to best prepare your young one for school, or looking for a fun, enriching place for your older child to spend time after school until you get off work, the YMCA has programs aimed at helping giving them the best chance at a bright future. We are committed to helping your family learn, grow and thrive.

Wausau School District 4K Program
Children learn through exploring and play! In early childhood programming, children are provided with opportunities to explore and apply new skills through child and teacher initiated activities. We use the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards as the foundation to the Wisconsin Common Core State Standards and our Wausau School District Program Goals to guide our curricular and assessment decisions.
