In June, the Heart of the Valley YMCA received a $10,000 gift from community partner Bryant Bank, made in support of our Early Childhood Education programs.

“We are grateful for this investment in our YMCA Early Childhood Education programs and for the support of the mission and impact of the YMCA. Early Childhood Education is the building block for children’s success in school,” said YMCA President Jerry Courtney.

The YMCA is an experienced community provider of quality, licensed early childhood education programs. By providing families with quality, year-round care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, the Y supports working families and helps prepare young children for kindergarten. The Y believes that building strong foundations during the early years helps prepare children for academic and lifelong success.

Our YMCA is committed to increasing availability, affordability and quality of child care to those in our community. We are able to provide scholarships for child care with your help. Whether you contribute your time, share the YMCA story, or make a donation, you help us strengthen the foundations of the Greater Huntsville area.
