Many people do not realize that, as a whole, the YMCA is the largest provider of child care in the United States. We believe that the quality of child care cannot be undervalued and thus every YMCA program is grounded in our character development traits of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.
Activities in our curriculum include health and wellness, arts and humanities, science and technology and service learning projects. Each of the YMCA Child Care programs are designed with age appropriate activities created to help your child grow and develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Wise Start is a Smart Start grant funded program designed for the preschool aged population. Wise Start offers physical and nutritional activities to child care centers throughout Stokes Co. These activities encourage preschool children and subsequently their families to adopt healthier lifestyle options.
Wise Start is not just focusing on the health benefits it has to offer, but a big part of this program focuses on teacher / child interaction. We want to see teachers more engaged with the children. By doing so, this gives our preschoolers a wonderful learning environment, with warm, inviting, caring teachers. We want to see all childcare facilities in Stokes Co strive to be a 4 star center or higher. Wise Start encourages teachers and caregivers to give the highest quality of childcare possible.
These children are our future and deserve the best. Let’s work together to help them receive a “Wise Start” in life.
