We recognize that all children progress through the same stages of development at their own rate. The YMCA Wiley Child Development Center program gives us flexibility to accommodate these different rates through the use of learning centers.

The YMCA’s Wiley Child Development Center is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Social Services. We have met, and continue to meet all local and state laws pertaining to child care. We strive to function at levels above and beyond the minimal requirements of the state.


Several staff members have degrees in early childhood or elementary education. Staff is continually trained and furthering education in the area of early childhood. All are required to complete 24 hours of training each year and are CPR certified. We have a warm, caring and friendly staff.


Rules are centered on character development and the YMCA’s core values of CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY. Teachers use rules consistently to reinforce positive behavior.



Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
