State Licensed Child Care & Development

“Encouraging a child means that one or more of the following critical life messages are coming through, either by word or by action: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, You are listened to, You are cared for, You are very important to me.” - Barbara Coloroso


The YMCA and the Mary Brenner Child Development Center would like to welcome all parents and children.  The YMCA provides a variety of services for the working parents of this community. Our program consists of full-day, year-round care for children 6 weeks through 5-year-olds.  We also provide full-day, part-day summer care for 5-11 years old.

We help your child grow through healthy living, a safe and nurturing environment, socially-conscious values, and positive social skills. Every activity and interaction instills the Y’s core belief that all children have great potential, and deserve the opportunity to discover it. Our inspiring team is committed to not only teach these values and beliefs but serve as role models.


Our program is designed to enhance the lives of children and to provide a positive environment for independent growth.  All children will be provided with time for learning, planning, investigating, and problem-solving. Valuable time spent with peers will allow for the development of social skills. Constructive, developmentally appropriate child guidance and management techniques are used at all times. Adults will model values and carefully guide children into making positive decisions. Children’s positive character development is built by thought, choice, determination, and encouragement to do their best.


Let us help you make sure your child’s future is strong and bright. Contact us at 419-422-3174 for more information, questions, and to schedule a tour!
