Providing a Safe, Caring, and Nurturing Learning Environment

Cross Lanes YMCA Child Development Center offers quality Infant, Toddler, Preschool and School Age care for children ages 6 weeks – 12 years old. Our center is licensed through the WV DHHR Bureau for Children and Families.

Our priority is to provide all children with a safe, positive, and nurturing learning environment. All of our classrooms use Creative Curriculum and the West Virginia Early Learning Standards Framework as a guide to develop the most beneficial and age-appropriate activities. Creative Curriculum emphasizes the development of social competence and learning through play while fostering independence and self-confidence. We believe that play helps children learn valuable life skills like problem solving, processing emotions, social skills, and more.

All our children are served a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack each day in compliance with the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). We accept Connect and Link and offer our YMCA Scholarship Program for families needing financial assistance. The YMCA does not turn away any child for inability to pay.

Prior to hire, all our employees must pass a drug screening and pass all required background checks, including sex offender registry check. Our employees must complete 18 hours of continuing education per calendar year including Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention training and maintain a current First Aid/CPR certification.
