Early Learning Center

We serve children ages six weeks to 10 years from 6:30 AM until 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Our program strives to nurture and encourage the natural curiosity and creativeness of your children.



The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. Every day, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, a mentor inspires a child, and a community comes together for the common good.

The YMCA is a nonprofit organization that is successful thanks to community partners and donors. Each year, the Annual Campaign serves as the primary drive to sponsor families and individuals through subsidized memberships and programs. Community impact through community investment continues as we grant 100% of proceeds into the lives of those in our region so every person has the opportunity to pursue a healthy spirit, mind, and body. If you would like to contribute to the YMCA mission, please select a donation amount below or call (815)-235-9622 for more information.
