About YWCA Academies for Early Learning
YWCA Early Learning Academies are on a mission to provide excellent early childhood education in a fun, enriching environment. Our goal is to bolster positive social, emotional and academic development while promoting school readiness. With more than 40 years of experience in early childhood education, YWCA is the best choice for childcare in El Paso. We offer seven daycare locations around town and convenient hours for working parents to fit your needs.
Every YWCA Academy for Early Learning is rated 4/4 stars by Texas Rising Star! This means we offer high-quality childcare and early childhood education. Learn more about the quality rating system here.
YWCA has also partnered with the El Paso Child Guidance Center to provide trauma-informed training for staff and care for children. Our staff are trained to help students identify, monitor, and express their emotions in healthy ways!
What makes YWCA the best childcare for you?
YWCA utilizes an early childhood education model that engages children in a rigorous active learning environment that is play and project-based. Our curriculum is also bilingual, preparing students to participate in a global society. YWCA Academies for Early Learning also feature the ABC Mouse curriculum for students ages 2 and up. With ABC Mouse, students use technology as part of their regular learning and parents are able to reinforce that learning and engage with their children at home.
YWCA’s mission is eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. We live our mission every day through our educational programs. Our students read books that feature women, Hispanic, Asian, black, Middle Eastern, and LGBTQ+ characters, stories of Hispanic culture, nonfiction stories about women and people of color making a difference in the world, and more!
YWCA also provides coloring and activity pages to our students that introduce them to important historical figures such as Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Sonia Sotomayor, Clara Barton, Harvey Milk, and more, as well as different types of families.
By reading these books and participating in these activities, YWCA students will have a normalized and positive view of women, people of color, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ community members as they grow.
Beyond an academic childcare curriculum, YWCA has introduced other curricula to best serve our students and their families. Through a partnership with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, we have implemented an emotional and behavioral health curriculum to help YWCA students excel in all aspects of life. We also train students and families in proper dental health and offer vision, speech, and hearing screenings through partnerships with local universities and colleges.
The trauma-informed curriculum is funded by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation’s Think. Change Initiative.
