The YWCA Early Learning Centers provide support for women participating in YWCA programs, students, working families, and families seeking to enhance the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of their child. The childcare center provides care for children, a stimulating curriculum and balanced, nutritious meals cooked on-site.

Our primary goals in working with children are to promote a sense of self-worth, to foster independence and self-discipline, to provide opportunities for success and to meet each child's individual developmental needs. As one of the largest providers of child care in the city of El Paso, caring for more than 1,300 children daily, YWCA Early Learning Centers are high-quality, caring places that address children’s academic, developmental and physical needs. Each state-licensed center offers balanced, nutritious, home cooked meals, convenient hours for working families, and dedicated, well-trained staff.

We are child care partners for: UTEP, EPCC, the Children’s Learning Institute, EPISD, The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso, and the Department of Defense. The YWCA has also partnered with the Department of the Army and Army Child Care in Your Neighborhood program to provide program materials and equipment to support the national accreditation of our Early Learning Centers.


Ensuring that children unlock their potential, the YWCA Early Learning Centers are warm, friendly places that foster exploration, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity and growth. Each site is staffed with highly-trained, nurturing caregivers who appreciate each and every child, as they are now, and for the amazing person they will grow up to be!  With more than 30 years of experience in child care, the YWCA is your best choice for child care in El Paso.
