“Analisa is an involved, proactive and positive parent at our YMCA. She often shares her appreciation for our safe and enriching program.”
-Annie Morency, Beach Cities Del Obispo YMCA
I am fortunate enough to have two kids who are part of the Del Obispo YMCA family and they just love it. I have two more who will start in the next few years. The service that YMCA offers my family goes beyond just child care. It truly is an extension of my family. The staff at the Del Obispo location is phenomenal! When we started there, the Director at the time was Annie Morency and she was just over and beyond amazing! She cared so much about the kids and was so much a part of their time there. Whenever I would pick up my kids, she was out in the garden with them, playing with them, teaching them sign language, and a myriad of other activities that are just not typical with most child care providers. The staff also consists of other wonderful ladies who have touched my kids’ lives so much. Because of this, it makes me so happy to want to give to an organization that I know will put it to good use. Also, I am fortunate enough to work for a company that has a foundation that is passionate about giving to community agencies, so they are able to match donations, and I can request that they be used specifically for the Del Obispo Y. Anything I can do to help make that a better an environment, not only for my children, but other children within the community, I am more than happy to do. I only wish I could do more.
