Keeping in Touch With Your Child is Just a Tap Away.

Today's families are busier than ever.
Between child drop offs, work, pick-ups, meal prep, and activities, you don't always have time to speak with your child's educators and learn about your child's day.

We're making it easier for our YMCA Preschool Child Care families to connect to the small moments and big milestones of their child's day, through our new YMCA app - WeemarkableTM.

WeemarkableTM is the window into your little one's day - from wherever you are.

It keeps your mind at ease and helps you share in the fun your child has throughout the day, with messages and photos, access to important child care notices, educator observations, milestones, menu information and direct to educator messaging.

All at just a tap.

And most importantly, even when you can't be with them, it's Weemarkable how connected you'll be.
