School Age Learning Center Details

YMCA School Age Learning Center at Calvary is a unique pairing between the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties and Calvary United Methodist Church. The site is owned by Calvary UMC, and operated by the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties. It is the first such pairing that we are aware of and has proven to be a great success. This site utilizes the Creative Curriculum as well as a Christian Curriculum, providing for daily Bible lessons, memory verses and Chapel each week with the Children’s Minister! Our overarching themes are “God made me. God loves me,” and “Jesus wants to be my friend forever.”
