YMCA of Greater Omaha Early Learning Centers


If you are looking for Omaha child care, look no further than the Y. YMCA Early Learning Centers are an important part of the impact the Y makes in our community every day. We know parents are looking for the best child care for their kids and our early learning centers are a place where children learn the building blocks they need to have the best possible start in their education. We get them to kindergarten ready to learn.

Our teachers and staff are guided by our four core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility and focus on supporting the families of the children in our care to strengthen and maintain healthy and happy families.

Our full-day kids will learn in our age-appropriate, center-style school, allowing children to grow in all areas. The Y’s preschools and Early Learning Centers use the Creative Curriculum Gold, which is based on the latest research that the most important years in a child’s life are from birth to 5-years of age.
