YMCA of the Golden Crescent’s Early Learning Center Provides Opportunities for Growth & Development for All Children
This summer, the YMCA of the Golden Crescent welcomed a new participant at their Early Learning Center. It was a learning curve for both the family and YMCA staff as they worked to personalize the learning program to fit his special needs. When he first entered the program, he was non-vocal and had sensory sensitivities that needed to be taken into account in order to aid in his growth and development.
After a tough first week of adjusting to his new learning environment, growth was already beginning to happen! He was enjoying himself, smiling, playing and even taking a nap! His parents were so impressed with his participation in nap time because they were having problems getting him to fall asleep on his own even at night. Day by day this little boy was making progress in multiple development areas.
Summer came to a close and it was time for him to go back to a private school that he attended during the year. His parents were so torn over the fact that he was going to be leaving. Over the next few months, YMCA staff continued to support his parents as they made the transition back to school. The family shared that he made so many gains while with the YMCA and they want him to continue that growth.
YMCA staff can’t wait to see how this little boy continues to grow and develop!
