About YMCA WA Family & Children's Services
YMCA WA has been providing services for children and their families for over 25 years. We employ over 350 qualified, experienced and passionate people in our Family & Children’s Services area, and are one of Western Australia's biggest not-for-profit providers in the sector.
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.
We believe that each child is unique, capable and curious, with the inbuilt strength and tremendous potential to be the master of their own learning. Our aim is to nurture these vital qualities with warmth and understanding to enable all children to grow and develop into happy, healthy people.
We believe that children bring to the learning environment a unique set of cultures, languages, skills, ideas and attitudes. We nurture and care for the complete child, allowing them time to explore and cultivate their own learning and interests in their own time. We do this by providing a natural environment that reflects the real world and takes advantages of the child’s natural wonder.
We value all families and their diversity, we are committed to developing cooperative and interacting relationships and we will work together to increase understanding. Our aim is to create a partnership built on mutual trust and respect, working together to assist our children to grow stronger in confidence.
