At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. We welcome children of all abilities. With varying needs, we can tailor our lesson plans to each individual child by utilizing Teaching Strategies GOLD in conjunction with the PA Early Learning Standards.

Both our Arnold Early Learning Center and Ebenezer Childcare Center are STAR 4 centers. Achieving a STAR 4 center requires the most stringent standards. We strive to create an atmosphere where children can have positive interactions and a well-rounded education. A diverse and inclusive program, we want families to experience a caring environment where everyone has a sense of belonging.

Our centers are in operation Monday-Friday from 6:30am-6:00pm. We are closed on New Years Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. On Christmas Eve and New Years Eve our centers close at 2pm. For registration information call 717-376-1384.
