Community Connection

All YMCA Early Learning Centres (YELC) work to establish mutually beneficial community relationships within their local area.  The strength of connection to the community is shown to be a factor which influences resilience and life outcomes of children.

Through involving children in experiences which include their broader community and exposing them to communicating with a range of age groups we provide children with unique learning opportunities.

 Children are connected with and contribute to their world, respond to diversity with respect, become aware of fairness, become socially responsible and show respect for the environment and develop a sense of belonging to groups and communities and an understanding of the reciprocal rights and responsibilities necessary for active community participation.
