Development Center

The YMCA Heritage Youth Development Center focuses on providing a nurturing, stimulating and positive first-school experience. Emphasis is placed on self-help skills and socialization. Many sensory activities are incorporated into the curriculum.

The Preschool program also provides a fun way to enhance language communication skills as well as pre-reading and motor skills. The childcare staff provides hands-on projects and opportunities to explore the arts and crafts, cooperative games, technology, dramatic play and daily literacy activites.

Full Day Child Care

The Heritage Youth Development Center cares and educates your children in a safe, loving environment that provides learning, fun and healthy habits while emphasizing the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Age Range

  • Infant care
  • 2 - 5 years


The YMCA's curriculum, for ages 2 though pre-kindergarten, prepares children for kindergarten and assists them in developing social skills and a natural curiosity about our world.

Our teachers will communicate regularly with you about activities in which your child participates and about his/her development progress. Your child also will have a variety of learning experiences to share with you including:

  • Language and reading activities that teach letter recognition, sounds and writing
  • Math activities that engage children in counting, adding, subtracting and measuring
  • Hands-on activities that help children discover the science and nature of our world
  • Group activities designed to develop social skills such as sharing, cooperating and listening
  • Activities exposing children to creative arts, music, physical education and computer technology


From recognizing sight words and identifying numbers to adjusting to new situations, KinderKamp will help your child master kindergarten requirements, as implemented by the State of Missouri. KinderKamp will help kids flourish in other areas, too! From weekly educational field trips to activities that encourage group involvement, KinderKamp engages kids both intellectually and socially.

In addition to helping children master kindergarten requirements, KinderKamp also includes vision and dental screenings, so you can rest assured that your child has the tools they need to thrive in school.

KinderKamp is for children entering kindergarten this fall. KinderKamp is $125/week. A drop program is offered for $25/day on a first-come, first-served basis. Full packet must be completed, including shot records.

  • Healthy snack time
  • Physical activities
