Children are like sponges—they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Greater Morristown YMCA, 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, afterschool and Adventure Day programs are staffed with people who understand the importance of developing a balanced program that includes strengthening gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social/emotional and language skills.
Our YMCA Staff is known for their caring, nurturing and friendly demeanor. They believe that by helping children feel connected and supported in trying new things, they will develop a healthy self-esteem. 
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 their homework.  Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves and develop positive self-esteem. That makes for confident children today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
