YMCA at Calvary

YMCA Child Care at Calvary

The YMCA Learning Center at Calvary is a wonderful partnership between Calvary United Methodist Church and the Fargo-Moorhead YMCA offering a unique blend of Biblical teaching, a Christian staff, and superior early childhood care and education. 

Our ministry can partner with your family to build a firm foundation for your children.  The YMCA Child Care at Calvary serves ages six weeks through sixth grade.  The program incorporates the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, health and safety in all classrooms.  We also incorporate regular Bible themes, weekly chapel services, and daily Bible stories.  God's infinite love and His timeless truths will be shared through lessons such as Noah and the flood, the birth of Jesus, Jacob's dream, and praising the Lord. 

Our goal is not only to teach children, but also to build character and minister to entire families.

Some of the attributes of our facility include:

  • Spacious play areas including a large gym, interior and exterior play equipment, fenced playground access from each room, and beautiful windows offering an abundance of natural light.
  • Individual cubbies and cots for nap time, child-sized sinks, toilets, tables, couches, shelves, and toys.
  • Parent information boards including lesson plans, menus, schedules, donation items, information about each teacher, and other pertinent information for families.
  • Special interest areas including dramatic play, art, science, math, sensory table, library, puzzles, blocks, play dough, and manipulatives.

Transportation to and from area schools for school age programs (check with director for availability). 

It is our privilege to serve families within the F-M community!
