Children 6 weeks to 12 years old are served by the youth programs at the YMCA of Greater Omaha. The assortment of available programs beyond those offered by the Early Learning Centers is impressive: refugee programs, sports, mentorship programs—all offered by the YMCA of Greater Omaha to help strengthen the community of the Omaha area.

The Early Learning Centers of the YMCA of Greater Omaha offer quality curriculum and assessments which help children grow and thrive upon entering school. Parent-teacher conferences help families set goals for the kids while kindergarten preparedness programs get young children ready for their first year of elementary school. “We have four brand new learning centers, for a total of six centers,” says Tanya Murray, YMCA of Greater Omaha executive director of Early Learning Centers. Partnering with CHI made the new centers possible.

Murray gets a little emotional when asked about her job. “I get really passionate about it,” she says. “I just want to be a blessing to other people and use my talents and strengths to work with kids and families and watch them grow.”
