The F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA follows the Creative Curriculum, using fun activities, such as this week’s lesson plan on different modes of transportation, as a vehicle for learning as well as setting developmentally appropriate goals and objectives for students in four stages: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. These stages encourage self-confidence, independence, critical thinking, and communication.

Interested in joining our Kirby Center family? Select enrollment opportunities are available for summer enrollment for ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, and now for the school year which begins on Monday, August 31. Please email Director of Child Care Services Karen Fusco at
