The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA, located at 54 East Street in Madison, will hold an open house on Monday, January 9, and Wednesday, January 11, from 9:30-11 a.m. and 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA offers curriculum-based, comprehensive childcare and early childhood educational programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners and school-age children. Kirby provides a developmentally rich and socially responsible environment supported by a specially trained and caring staff who help children develop strong skills as well as physical, social and emotional confidence.

As the elementary curriculums in our excellent local schools become increasingly rigorous, foundations must be laid early to prepare children to tackle the more complex, integrated learning that will be expected. Learning to problem solve, build STEM skills, think critically, appreciate art, play an instrument, design, speak a foreign language, develop physical strength and write thoughtfully are no longer optional – they are necessary and have a profound influence on a child’s future success.

Mike Czech – One of Chatham’s Hidden Gems….

On a warm sunny day, back in 2008, at Southern Boulevard Elementary School stood a very tall man (6.5” to be exact!), soft-spoken, warm and friendly as he was surrounded by a whole group of children running around him (at his knees).

His name was Mike Czech and he was teaching the kids how to play a game on the open court.   I introduced myself to help assist him as a fellow ...
