"We've been happy in every way with the Bend Y! Every day at the Y is a happy one and my daughter stays engaged and looks forward to going each day. One of the things she learned is that "you don't hurt with your mouth and you don't hurt with your hands," something she puts into practice now regularly. She starts Kindergarten next year and because of her positive experience with the Y's preschool program, she has no anxiety and is so excited to start school!" -S.F.

I moved my child over to YMCA in November of 2018. Part of the reason was we wanted an easier commute in the winter and the other reason was because I wanted her to have the YMCA experience at least once in her life. From day one she loved her time with the YMCA. She loved her teachers, classmates, and every single project she did. We were overjoyed when we heard that the kids were doing a Christmas show that year, which was completely unexpected. My daughter truly learned so much more in the few months she was at YMCA. Her vocabulary and grammar improved and she can now recite the "Pledge of Allegiance." Thank you so much to the YMCA - I'm so happy that she had this experience! -J.F.
