Central, Lower Bucks Family YMCAs celebrate the Week of the Young Child


zane readsCentral and Lower Bucks Family YMCAs celebrated the The Week of the Young Child™ with a reading tour of all four of its Youth Education Centers in Bucks County.

Zane Moore, President/CEO visited the centers in Morrisville, Fairless Hills, Newtown and New Britain on Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20 to share a story and quality time with the young children enrolled in the program. Moore brought along two special friends, Cinderella and a friendly lion, much to the children’s delight.

“It was such a pleasure to have a chance to spend time with the incredible kids in our Youth Education Centers. At Central and Lower Bucks Family YMCAs we know the importance of children's earliest years in shaping their learning and development and we strive to help kids build self-esteem and confidence and to grow daily. We had so much fun visiting our kids and seeing all the ways they are thriving at the Y,” said Moore.

The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the world's largest early childhood education association, with nearly 60,000 members and a network of 50 local, state and regional Affiliates.

The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

Youth Education Centers in Central and Lower Bucks Family YMCAs offer year round childcare from age six weeks to kindergarten. Additionally, they offer weekly summer enrichment programs at each of their locations. In Lower Bucks County, the Y provides before and after school care at several local elementary schools.

The Y also offers summer camp for children of all abilities, age 3 through grade 10, in Doylestown, Warminster, Morrisville, Fairless Hills, Holland, Mill Creek, and Croydon locations.
