    All 3 of our kids went to YCA through pre-k. There were particular staff members and aspects of the program that elevated it above simple daycare but when I compare it to the private school they now attend I don't think YCA compares overall. I think the fact that it is a for-profit business is a problem in that some decisions are made not on the basis of what best serves the educational needs of a particular child but on the owner's bottom line and/or what is a better 'business decision.' For example lots of kids don't need another year of 'letter of the week' when they get to pre-k but are already pretty much reading. Not offering an alternative to the lock-step program when this is the case is an opportunity missed and one that a lot of other schools are able to harness.

    I must agree as well that this is definitely a school with very nurturing and caring teachers. The entire staff are wonderful leaders. The only low enrollment is the elementary level aged students since the past two years YCA has incorporated 1-5 grades which is now called the Queen Anne Community School. Students may not have PE per say but there is yoga incorporated into the curriculum as well as walking to the park daily after lunch so exercise is very much a part of the student's day.

    Contrary to what that previous poster said YCA is anything but just a daycare! The staff and teachers at YCA have nurtured taught and loved our two kids from infant to Pre-K; our children are so far ahead of the curve socially and emotionally and mentally because of it. Enrollment is anything but low; there are long waiting lists to get into YCA. The programs are well developed thoughtful and engaging. Not only is there a lot of outdoor activity but the kids are taught early on about community service empathy and responsibility. Our kids have loved each and every day at YCA as well as all their teachers; it's a fantastic preschool to send your children.

    Good daycare not a school! low enrollment and poor planning no PE or outdoor activities.

    We have 2 children here and have been here for 2 years. The concept is based on the Waldorf philosophy which we prefer. I feel good leaving my children here full-time. They learn play and are involved in the community the latter of which is unusual in preschools. The teachers are great and the kids are loved.
