Read about the Director, Margarita Calero

I currently attend Saddleback College where I am finishing up my AA in ECE. Being part of the YMCA family has been an amazing experience from getting to know each family to growing with them. I look forward to having a sun, safe, and educational environment for you and your children. I love encouraging each and every child in my program to feel empowered in their education!

Read Parent's Testimonies

“Both of our children have been a part of the YMCA’s KPlus program and we have been very happy with the results. With school class sizes getting larger, the extra attention they get at the Y helps them to fully understand concepts they are learning and get more valuable learning time during the day. The program has kept them ahead of the game and has helped them to better manage their work and play time from a young age.” – Jim Blake-Kinder parent

“I love to go to the YMCA because you get to help share, and play with friends. But I like to carve pumpkins. I like the Y! TODAY is the Best day ever!” – Meera 8 yrs old
