Countryside YMCA in Clarksville, Ohio offers a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. Our Step Up to Quality star-rated preschool and school age program is designed to meet the need of families with children ages three years old through eighth grade.
Our vision is for all Countryside YMCA childcare programs to be the leaders in building children of character. Through the use of "The Creative Curriculum" our program encompasses the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.
Lessons are designed to enhance problem-solving skills, improve personal interaction, and showcase each child's natural creativity.
The well-planned curriculum is consistent with the YMCA's philosophy to offer child-centered and holistic learning. The curriculum is aligned with the State of Ohio's early learning and developmental standards for Social-Emotional Development, Approaches Toward Learning, Cognitive Development and General Knowledge (including Mathematics, Science and Social Studies), Language and Literacy Development, Physical Well-Being and Motor Development.
Parents are welcome to visit during classes and volunteer throughout the day.
